I have dug up an old graphics library called GRX[1] and modernized
it[2]. So, I am using the screen dimensions to make it DPI-aware so that
the font on my 2.4" screen looks the same size as my 2.8" screen when
both are 320x240 pixels. Until this year, all of the displays I have
only have fbdev drivers.
