FS#589 - Fix 8bpp->6bpp color scaling

Right now we just shift the color data over by 2bits.  It looks like that's naive; it looks like we need some sort of gamma-aware 8->6 mapping on a per-channel basis.  This may require Gutenprint to spit out RGB data, and we perform the YMC conversion at the same time we apply gamma?  (not unlike the Mitsu D70 family..)

The printer's "gamma curve" settings don't seem to have any major effect.

It's also possible that my printer's head is just plain shot (there's already a bad row of pixels..), and that everything is actually fine.

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  Implemented basic gamma curves -- off, 2.2, and 1.8. No idea if those match the curves the windows drivers provide, but the output looks decent enough.
