yeah, vm86 mode overall is, from my point of view, a step backwards. We 
chose emulation after a lot of trials with other ideas.

So, maybe X works well with lots of cards, but I need to be convinced 
that the problems we're seeing are real emulator problems, not hardware 
setup problems. I'm not convinced we know what is going on here.
