While skimming through the BUG list, there's a report about
R_Polygon_abs() ignoring islands. A little investigation would show
this to be correct. However, each display driver must implement this
individually, and I only looked at the XDRIVER24 version.
Anyway, the code is real simple and does not do anything other than
draw a filled polygon based on supplied display coordinates and the
already set fill color. Presumably it is up to the caller to handle
islands/holes. However, this is probably not a simple task when drawing
a filled polygon cover over other layers. Perhaps what is wanted is a
high level vector drawing command such as some of the commands in the
partially functional DISPLAYLIB??? I don't know X well enough to know
if it has a way to handle holes in it's polygon drawing routines.
A little more context for the BUG report seems in order since this
really doesn't seem to be a "bug", but a shortcoming.
