tgi_setbitmap() just seems counter-inituitive for what the function is going
to do: draw some data to the screen.

I prefer tgi_blit or tgi_bitblt personally.  I agree we should avoid the
term "sprite", as that means different things on different platforms
(although some platforms may just use their sprite hardware to implement
tgi_blit-the lynx probably.)
