Why not? Could be very useful for (limited performance) animation and
for saving a screen area to be restored after i.e. displaying some
"popup window" thingy.

That's what I wanted to point out in the first place: There's nothing
to get about a bar or a line. But there's a get for a pixel and a
bitmap. Both BGI and TGI add a get- and put-/set-prefix only if
necessary to disambiguate.
