I wouldn't use the Spectrum as a model -- it had a really weird
non-linear frame buffer layout. In fact, none of the 8-bit micros'
code would be much help, as they typically had <1 byte per pixel,
rather than the more common 1-4 bytes per pixel of modern displays.
IIRC, the Amiga also had strange display hardware, so I'd rule that
one out as a model as well. :)
