Were these tested?

The 4 color verion is slower than the 16 color version.  The 4 color
version thinks one of its planes is 320 wide so the graphics are all
messed up.  Both version seem to have 640x566 *hardwired* as the size.
I have a 2024 and it doens't do vertical overscan *at all* So anything
decides to display in that overscanned area and my screen goes blank.

The power of /dev/view is that the user gets to pick and choose what
he/she wants not the software.  The software should have a generic
interface to dev/view and allow the user to pick given command args.
Now this may be the case I dunno if so there is no indication of it
when I do "X -h".  I am no X expert so I wouldn't know if there is
some database I need to setup or whatever.

Other than that I ma glad a color version is being worked on :^)

2024 owners don't bother fetching these new X servers they won't work.
