16-bit only, but thank you for offering, I appreciate it.

It certainly would be, considering that it's impossible :-) CGA and VGA
both have adapter RAM at B800:0000. You can still do dual-monitor, but
it would have to be Mono/Herc and CGA or Mono/Herc and VGA. Mono/Herc
has RAM at B000:0000 and doesn't overlap. Many debuggers support this

You can't put VGA into a Tandy 1000 because the Tandy video cannot be
disabled, IIRC. There were a few Tandy 1000 models that had VGA
onboard, but while they supported Tandy 3-voice sound+DAC, they did not
support Tandy 16-color graphics.
