I'd prefer not to be, but I don't really have the option as long as 
people keep buying G200 IP cores and jamming them into server management 
consoles.  And in fact I'm working on bolting RANDR 1.2 in, so when 
people walk up with the crash cart and plug in an LCD they might be able 
to get better than 10x7.

My long term hope is to move everything into a KMS driver and use 
-modesetting for it though.  And then some day -mga might port to that 
and re-grow the video support and maybe even 3D if people really want 
that DirectX 6 experience.
