Converting the Atari ST screen mode in realtime can be done, its not exactly speedy, but if someone wanted to run GEM in colour, it isn't a problem.

Obviously on base 68000 systems it'll be slow, but on faster machines, its not really a problem at all, its a very simple routine to write and you simply wait for the main routine in TOS to finish writing to the ST screen, and then convert in realtime to an area set aside in Amiga chip ram to display a 16 colour screen.
