The low level leo driver in XFree86 4.2 source has several accelerated
functions, and cg14 has none.
If your system is limited by drawing speed, a framebuffer with an
accelerated driver could make a big difference.
Someone tried to sell three of these on eBay recently, and got only two
takers at US$5 and $15. (plus $15 ship each). Another seller got $15.50
+ $8 ship. At these prices an experiment is cheap.
