24bpp SGX drivers for my Overo-based OLED Microdisplays?


I'm bringing up my project which is a pair of SVGA+ OLED Microdisplays from
eMagine (see: http://www.emagin.com/products/index.php) driven directly by
my own tiny board. My board accepts an Overo Fire and consists mainly of
power circuitry to create the 4 voltage rails needed by the displays and
other electronics from a single board-mounted 3.7V Lithium-Ion cell. My
board also has a video DAC to create the analog signals needed by the
Microdisplays, etc. The user input is via Bluetooth (perhaps a Bluetooth
mouse and/or keyboard initially or a Wii remote eventually).

The displays are capable of displaying different images to each eye for 3D
and I was hoping to use the SGX drivers for some eye-popping 3D user
interfaces. However my HW supports 24bpp only and on
http://code.google.com/p/beagleboard/wiki/HowtoUseSGXunderAngstrom I find:
"By default, the Beagleboard boots with 24 bit-per-pixel frame buffer
operation. The SGX drivers do not support this mode."

Will the SGX drivers support 24bpp anytime soon?
