Go ahead, it would be good.
Semantics wise, you should load the file at init time, & determine the
properties (width, height, depth). Then make the CheckMode primitive
set any GGI_AUTO values to the same as the file, and make the SetMode
refuse any mode that doesn't match the file (unless you want to
support scaling/depth conversion... :->).
Make all write primitives (putpixel, drawline, etc) fail, and only
support the read primitives (you will only need GetPixel_NC to get an
initial prototype working).
Hope that helps.
