I'm currently leaning towards the following solution:

	Image.new(mode, size) => black, as described in the handbook
	Image.new(mode, size, None) => uninitialized, for speed freaks :-)
	Image.new(mode, size, ink) => user-defined

I only need to change the default argument to make this work; it won't
surprise people (as the current implementation seems to do, even when
they haven't read the handbook), and it will not break any existing

Cheers	/F
