The VDI should already support contiguous bitplanes. It probably wouldn't be a huge lot of work to make the destination screen use contiguous planes or interleaved line by line. This is just a guess however. The Amiga blitter couldn't be used in an ST style screen mode either. It lacks a programmable x increment. Not that emu tos has blitter support in the VDI yet
