Yep, it's definitely a buglet (the documentation and the code doesn't
match).  In 0.2b4, the syntax is:

	Image.new(mode, size) # don't initialize
	Image.new(mode, size, ink) # initialize to ink

In 0.3, this has been changed to:

	Image.new(mode, size) # initialize to black
	Image.new(mode, size, ink) # initialize to ink
	Image.new(mode, size, None) # don't initialize
to make life a bit easier...
