Sorry, I garbled that.  What I meant to say is that Graphics.h is not in
R_ext and does not start with `R', only such headers are exported.

We have talked about exporting some of the graphics functions.  The
problem is the device driver defns, which I at least do not think are
stable enough to export. So the idea that we were exploring was to 
have *DevDesc as an opaque type in the exported header, and only allow
internal code access to its internals.  (If functions using *GPar 
need to be exported, then that would need to be made opaque too.)

Separately, Duncan TL was interested in accessing the driver part for an
addon driver, and I don't think we got too far in resolving that.
