Boy the list has been quite today...

Hmmm it looks like half of the design of the motherboard is going to be video.

Seems like it could be kinda of tricky with the timing, and high bandwidth.

Any implementation we do is going to need custom drivers (especially if 
accelerated.) Scsi and ethernet seem easy to put on the mtb by comparison.

Might not a VESA slot be easier to design?  Faster?  Better supported?
(i.e. accelerated drivers). 

Of course VESA support requires ISA support.
