Investigate possible blitting options:

There are different ways of transfering the final bit
image to screen:
- bitblt
- GAPI
- PocketHAL

Need to determine the most performant way of doing
this.

    I would suggest leaving if possible two or more options.
    While bitblt is slower, there are cases where it is useful
    to have the scene rendered in a child window, which is
    really tricky to do in GAPI (I do not know in PocketHAL)

    Good point. Several people asked explicitly for PocketHAL
    support, so that might be an option in addition to regular
    GDI blits.

    There is a proposal in the wokring group to extend the
    egl... API in an easy way for explicit fullscreen support,
    and that might trigger which approach is used.

    Add support for PocketHAL in addition to existing GDI surfaces.
