    Oh, I do agree w/ this.

    But if the OS<->hardware interface is kept simple (e.g. simple DMA ring
    of items to execute, or just xfer to video RAM, and perhaps another
    response msg ring) then the impact of any design changes you -do- make
    are mitigated, and the OS driver is kept small and simple as well.
