LibGGI is the central library in the GGI project.  It provides an
opaque interface to the display's acceleration functions.  It was
originally intended to allow user programs to interface with KGI,
the GGI Kernel Graphics Interface, but other display types can be
easily used by loading the appropriate "display target" (e.g. X,
memory).  LibGGI consists of a main library ( and a
multitude of dynamic drivers.  The library then loads the necessary
"drivers" for the requested mode, taking hints from the graphics
device if necessary.  LibGGI can also load extension libraries,
e.g. to provide enhanced 2D and 3D functions.
