Yep. Simple, eh?

And I think I know why I'm not getting the 400-500 fps claimed by
ClanBomber: I use a *single* dirty rectangle that I expand and reset
every frame. So if I paint a pixel in the upper left corner and another
in the lower right, the whole screen is going to be blitted. But I find
300 fps is enough. :-)
