What I had in mind was using "framebuffer vesa" in that case.  But
I will use the library approach so it is not relevant anymore.  Unless
someone thinks it is?

I am afraid I can not work on this this week.  I will be gone for a
week and can not answer my emails.  But I intend to work on this for a
complete week (next week I think).  So I hope people will not work on
these things in the meanwhile, if you intend to do so, please contact
me really soon...
