Hmm, that sounds fragile though when there are both variants; is there
any guarantee they can't appear in the opposite order?

Really, the compositor should explicitly specify the format based on the
window visual in this case. But from discussion on IRC, EGL doesn't seem
to have a mechanism for that yet.

Yeah, I misunderstood what the two variants are here, sorry for the noise.
