The documentation for the postscript operator image is to be found in the
red book (Section 4.10)

Actually that is not missing. The data sources should
be considered as a continuous bitstream with highorder bits first.
However, every row of te source image starts at a character boundary.

First of all, I do not think that the colourspace is a paramater
to the image operators.
Second, I can't remember seeing a colourspace in the xgps backend
However, the image dictionary actually has a required parameter
`Decode' which is an array and contains 2 values per (colour) component.
These values specify the minimum and maximum value of this colour component
and the values from the data source should be mapped in to this

There is the parameter `Interpolate' that defaults to false
which might be used to switch between fast / faithfull.
P.S.: Sorry, I forgot to read section 4.10 so I missed
the Decode and Interpolate parameters in my first mail.
