Just because we have monow and monob pixel formats, it doesn't mean they
should be used wherever 1 bpp data is involved. And once again, the
semantics according to Microsoft are that 1 bpp AVI is NEVER monochrome,
it is ALWAYS palettized, regardless of the number of colors, or whether
they are black & white or not. And implementing "mono switches" for 1
bpp depth for every file format involves writing a lot of superfluous
code just for this, and in the case of qtrle, creating a whole new loop
for the 1 bpp case. Overkill.
