BTW, what exact size should such an extra LCD display have (in the original large size), so that it would be appropriate for newRPL? (I ask because you've added 2 extra key rows)
There's not an easy answer to that question.
The display is still the same 131*80 pixels. The demo currently uses it magnified x4 (each pixel is a 4x4 square). The annunciators are 12 pixels high and the top of the icons is 20 pixels from the
top of the first active pixel on the screen. So the height is 4*80 + 20.
However, some people might prefer x3 magnification depending on their screen resolution. Higher resolution screens might need more magnification. I'd say go with the current 4x, people who need more or less will also have to magnify the keyboard image anyway, so your bitmap shouldn't change.
