Xpra: Ticket #1713: black and white mode

We already have "png/L" support, but we could add a global black-and-white mode to try to save bandwidth:

I'm not sure this will save enough bandwidth: the self-tuning video encode heuristics normally switch to YUV420P for video, and that already reduces the space taken by the colours to 33% or less of the bitstream. For non-video, it may allow us to use a lossless encoding more often than we would otherwise.
