 general-purpose software-based rendering engines are not
parrtiicularly good at 3D, luckily jeff's work shows exactly where the
prime focus would be needed.  he did however point out that due to the
sheer quantity of hardware needed to get that optimised
hardware-accelerated "function" it would turn nyuzi into a totally
different engine.

 still thinking about it.

 neither.  opencores has a series of video "blocks" that could go in a
separate engine, DMA-based etc. etc.  these will need tto be added as
