    I don't see any reason that code would *need* to change.

I think lots of the redisplay code operates directly on buffer
contents.  Other primitives too.

If you would, please point me to a specific line of code or two
that illustrates what you mean.  I was poking around in the code
before trying to answer you and I didn't spot anything that
looked problematic but I don't claim to know that code well,
