Nooope, it was just designed as something the file-target could MMAP,
and update it the easy way (just writing to memory). Part of that
design was that it could run directly on an /dev/fb* device (via MMAP),
and still see the right image (within reason, e.g. a few lines of
garbage at the top, and only working on certain fbdev modes that use
the exact same format, and no palette setting).
