Geez. I don't have any justification for this but I would've thought
the interface would've been lower-level (e.g., pixel ops). Shows you
what I know. Based upon a whole 2 sleep-deprived minutes of thought, I
am guessing that this is actually a really good thing. I was worried
the frame buffer emulation would be s-l-o-w. I guess it won't be!
I guess the real trick will instead be trying to emulate that behavior
on bare hardware some time in the future...
Keep us posted!
