8-bit on some hardware, 16-bit or higher on other.

You have to. There's simply far too many laptops out there that cannot
accomodate any better than 8-bit depths. Ditto for a lot of legacy
hardware that is the only thing that Ubuntu users in some less
priviledged countries can afford or that they are given by charities
from more priviledged countries. Ditto for a lot of embeded devices
into which a slimed-down version of Ubuntu is being fitted.
