How about any some other card type? Such as a Mach* or S3 cards? Those
are pretty common and supported by must operating system, and S3 should
probably not be that hard to simulate.  But i810 is maybe easier.

You are right. I will implement S3Trio23/64 support. Only ioport based acceleration will be supported in the first release.
