   Surely, a clean design will scale to whatever resolution is
available. Regardless, if we are going to be portable, we can't
bind ourselves to what is available on one architecture. Of course,
the PC world seems to be the primary target, so we have to keep it
in mind. Unfortunately, there is no real standard for SVGA, so we
should probably support plain VGA first.
