Fair enough then. My point was mostly about format vs fmt, so one
option could be to use "compat_fmt" or such, but do whatever you feel
is right, I don't care too much about it.

Okay, it seems that I was just confused for no particular reason and
stride, pitch, bytesperline and linesize are all just synonyms. So feel
free to pick whichever you see fit :)
