And I'd be interested in making my 1600x1280-capable framebuffers do
1600x1200, so they can be used with designed-for-peecee (= inexpensive)
displays. (The one I care most about is a cg14, not a cg6, but IIRC
they are rather similar in how things like video modes get set.)

You appear to be in Germany. I have lots of such SBus boards, and
would be happy to post one to you, but I don't know whether it would be
worth the hassle involved in getting it through borders - I'm in
Canada. If you want one, drop me a line - I don't recall whether
you've gotten mail to me in the past; if not, I recommend
mouse at netbsd.org and mouse at openface.ca as well as
mouse at rodents.montreal.qc.ca.

Doesn't uncompiling the FCode give you a fair idea of what's involved
in setting up the video?

No thanks. It appears to be (a) entirely auf Deutsch, (b) binary-only,
and (c) offering nothing I particularly want.
