Well, I was sort of wrong about this. A look at the Voodoo3 register
docs shows that, at least for block copies, there's a bit that you have
to set in the srcFormat register (bit 20, "Host Port Byte Swizzle"),
which induces the Voodoo chip to auto-byteswap things for us. I got
accelerated text mode working, except presently no flashing cursor in
accelerated mode. That's next. Then maybe I can get this color stuff
hashed out.

(Sorry about the self-followup.)
