Or maybe use an FPGA so we can design our own hardware-accelerated
graphics functions, and it can double for some other purposes too.
OpenGraphics is starting that way (spartan 3 if memory serves).  They
are cheap.  Not sure if they are low-power enough to use in a phone.

What about the XScale accelerators?  There was one designed
specifically as a companion to the PXA270.  Are they more open?

My Zaurus has a TC6393; it has line-drawing and rectangle-filling in
hardware.  I have used it successfully for those tasks.  But that's
not much acceleration.
