No no no. The graphics library should be able to do that
translation for you. And it (LibGGI) can. I've never tried XGGI with the
LibGGI terminfo target, but in principle it should work. Imagine
telnetting in to your box and firing up an X session over your VT102
terminal....

Which can be done on most SVGA hardware. Also, AAlib, which
"dithers" bitmaps down to ASCII art, also has a LibGGI target. I need to
dig up those GGIMesa-on-AAlib screen dumps....
