No? If I render an object, and the edge of that object only covers
half of a pixel, why does it need more than half the colour range?

OK then, if I bow to the prevailing wisdom, what it boils down to
is that I could load an image file containing pre-multiplied alpha
without being asked if the alpha should be un-multiplied. (Although
I still think there's a useful distinction between pre-mult alpha
and non-mult masks, and I would like to load an rgba image into
Gimp and then add a mask layer.)
A quick glance at the targa file spec reveals nothing about the
intended meaning of the rgba data.
