Seconded.  Loki was doing a good thing with game ports to Linux, but
they'd take a game that could run in anything from 640x480x8 to
1600x1200x24 and produce a Linux port that could run ONLY in an 800x600
window and ONLY at 15bpp or 16bpp, which meant the vast majority of
Linux users couldn't run it without reconfiguring their X server.
