Thanks for informing me. Learning all the time :-)
I could think of one option, which I don't like (performance penalties 
will probably be one (or more?) big downside somehow), and that is 
mapping pieces of the framebuffer for each and every bitmap seperately 
via the kerneldriver. Which probably still not helps for DirectWindow.

This I am not going to setup any time soon :)

Anyhow: it's good to have an overall picture of the options at hand!
