I've been implementing the X11 protocol in pure Smalltalk and I want to 
use a little bit of FFI to shmget/shmat and use that to get the pixels 
over to the X server. At present XPutImage is working but flooding the 
server with XPutImage seems to run into a rate limit from time to time 
so it's not very usable. Best to switch to mmap/shm if I can.
