It depends on the return of gdk_pixbuf_get_colorspace() and
gdk_pixbuf_get_n_channels(), though at the moment the only possible
values are RGB and RGBA.

It doesn't depend on byte order, but you need rowstride instead 
of width, and you need to be sure the pixbuf has an alpha channel.

0x000000FF is always opaque black. It's defined as 
R << 24 | G << 16 | B << 8 | A I believe.
