no prob! i know svgalib has good performance, i just think it sucks
because of no vsync. but maybe vsync does work with some cards...?
anyway i like the patch but i'd need to read and understand the code a
lot better to feel comfortable applying it, so i'm hoping someone else
will do it. if not i'll take a look...remind us in a week or so if no
one's acted on it.
