Ah, the displayBits stuff is probably Ian putting back something
similar to the ancient (and removed) hack I used to use on the Acorn to
keep the Display bitmap as an object but not in object space. We had
some mail back and forth about that some months ago and it sounded like
he wanted to make use of the concept for something.

I'd look at that .bz2 file but I seem to have no way of opening it.
