Correct. The X server driver can basically do it if you don't use Option
"UseFBDev", but not correctly either because we don't have an equivalent
for a video BIOS providing the necessary information.
About the DGA thing: DGA has to be one of the most useless and
incorrectly used extensions. If xmame doesn't work without it, I'd
consider it broken.
xmame works fine in a window, but doesn't do full-screen without it. I
started down this track because I wanted to see if the hardware scaling
would work better than xmame's software scaling.
