Personaly I think you're wrong, I think there is plenty to be gained from
a graphics solution which contains a hardware BITBLT and LINE DRAW engine.
If I remember correctly these two functions comprise between 50 and 85 percent
of the overhead in a non accelerated windows environment. That a lot, even for
the fast MIPS CPU.
