Please note, that your conversion to and from 16bit RGBA is not completely correct. To span the full range of 2^16 values in the unisgned integer of farbfeld, you would need to multiply or divide by 257 instead of 256 since the maximum value in an 8 bit integer is 255 and NOT 256. If you look at the implementation at suckless.org for reference, this is done exactly that way.
Thanks for the comment! I'll get the source and article content updated accordingly.
