15bit visuals under Sierra?
Submitted by fwd7

Support for 15bit visuals were removed in XQuartz 2.7.5 - please put it back!
Old tickets on github mentioned that 15bit visuals were removed because the libXplugin on Mountain Lion did not support it. Is this still the case on the current version of libXplugin used by Sierra? (There is no recent discussion/bug report on bugs.freedesktop.org, as far I could find.)
XQuartz | Preferences | Output | Colors lists a line for Thousands colors, which translates into a value of 15 for depth in the org.macosforge.xquartz.X11.plist preference file.
But when I use xwininfo, I get: Depth: 24 Visual: 0x22 Visual Class: TrueColor
And calling XDefaultDepth returns a value of 24, too.
(If 15bit is not feasible, please at least remove the line for Thousands colors in the XQuartz.app's GUI.)
