So to make it clearer, I have a graphics library called GFX

It does not know a thing about video hardware. It's strictly standard C++ with no libraries other than stdlib

Then, I have drivers. Drivers expose a few members that can be called by GFX.

These members don't account for line drawing and such. They boil down to "fill rectangle with this color" or "fill a rectangle with this bitmap"

In order to take advantage of specific features of this device, like hardware line drawing, I need to redesign that layer/interface between the drivers and GFX.

Seems like a no brainer except this is the only device out there that has the hardware line drawing and such. Nothing else does. And it's not even a common display. That sort of makes me not only not want to bother, it almost makes me want to actually avoid it.
