Well the original worked ok on the Itsy and the iPaq is a grownup Itsy
and Jay's code was derived from my itsy code and bunch of his hard work,
so it should all do fine.
I see that it is currently limited to using a display that exactly
matches the Squeak Display depth, and relies on the transform from
Squeak pixels to iPaq pixels being the simplest case (swapping byte
order of words). This could be a problem in some situations, but try it
and see. I have quite a bit of experience in mangling pixel formats, so
call me if you find a problem.
