BWindowScreen probably needs app_server support, too, so... :-)

There is no real search algorithm, though. Right now, only the first 
usable driver will be opened. The method that is responsible currently 
looks like:

AccelerantHWInterface::GetDriverPath(BString &string)
        // TODO: hardcoded to vesa for now. Fix me
        string = "graphics/vesa";
        return B_OK;

I'll fixed it now if you don't mind, although I think BWindowScreen is 
broken anyway - we'll see.
