That was my original thought too but looking at that seems to be more than - at
least I think - we're planning here...

I think the type of sprites I know are too different to allow for
that. A user of the function in question has the right to presume i.e.
these working:

- Call it as many times with as many bitmaps he likes.
- Draw i.e. a line over a bitmap.
- Get the color of a drawn bitmap pixel with tgi_getpixel().
- Save a screen with drawn bitmaps using some-non TGI function as a
target-specific graphics file.
