Wow, seems there's a lot more interest in this idea than I expected!
Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks very much for the advice! Hmm, this is getting me thinking -- how
about KMSifying the vesa driver? That was the first idea I had, but my
initial research caused me to think that there wouldn't be much interest

And you are an impressive competitor indeed. :)
Updating the documentation, now that sounds like a fantastic idea! In
the off-chance that we both end up working on KMSification projects, I'd
love to help!
Have a great one,
