It may only be the GX+ and TGX+ that can do double-buffering.  I made an
effort to avoid GX and TGX consoles because of how horribly slow they

One of the NetBSD folks has asked for the TGX-A and one of the MGX boards,
but the other are all still available.  I don't want to threaten them with
scrapping, but there's a lot less interest in these than there as in OS/2
