I have slightly mixed feelings on this one. I like the idea of it
being initialized to something known, but a new implementation of
Image.new() can be provided by applications that want that interface.
The current implementation has a performance advantage which is
probably small most of the time, but hard to regain once lost. I'd
revise the documentation for this one, and interested applications
could do something like:
def newImage(mode, size, color=None):
if color is None:
color = DEFAULT_COLORS[mode]
return Image.new(mode, size, color)
