You'd probably be disappointed by it. I found the channel separation to be 
a lot more enjoyable when each components has at least a bit of luma 
(luminosité) in it, whereas in YUV, all the luma is in the same channel (Y 
est une image en noir-et-blanc), and the two other channels only contains 
chroma (colour info not related to luma), and in that case, it's visually 
very hard to follow.

I did try the YUV mode with my patch before I sent it to you, but it 
didn't look good, so I reverted to RGB, and then I had the idea of 
designing a different colourspace especially so that the channel 
separation would be more interesting to look at than in RGB. But I don't 
know whether it's possible and whether there's any other reason why it 
might not be a good idea, and generally I haven't really thought about it 

Perhaps if you looked at the YUV mode of it, you'd think it's interesting, 
I don't know. But I'm sure you would agree that it's visually hard to
