Steve, what about the progress thats been made on 16-bpp so far.. Are you saying that its impossible to get the RGB aligned properly?

 is there any way to get X running on this LCD at all?

X11 will run, it just doesn't look pretty.  You can try the
gumstix-x11-image if you want to see for yourself.

 I would be okay
 with fewer bits per pixel for for now. Can microwindows be tricked
 into running 16bpp or something?

Microwindows loves rbg16, unfortunately the consoleLCD is wired for
rgb18.  The pxa270 lcd controller is not flexible enough to mux the
lcd data outputs for the various pixel depths, so it it pretty much
locked into rgb18 in hardware.
