I don't speak for the developers here, so you may want to take my
words with a grain of salt, but I believe the biggest problem deals
with virtual memory mapping.  Under VCPI, it is possible to guarantee
that physical memory gets mapped to E0000000--EFFFFFFF, etc.  Under
DPMI, this is no longer possible, which is a problem to several bits
of code, especially those pertaining to graphics.  BTW, have any GRX
drivers been made supporting direct linear mapping (I know that at
least my Cirrus Logic card supports this)?  If so, the problem would
be somewhat alleviated...
