If you want to make video driver for it then and keep it up-to-date,
otherwise no. Personally I have no intention to work on it. It displays
garbage because font system has changed... and will be changed again in
future once there is vector font support. For that I think font blitter
goes away and new bitmap blitter (or old one) is used.

Question how to scale to different display sizes hasn't been solved
either... This is the main reason for vector fonts, scaling bitmap fonts
just gets really ugly.
