So long as we think we're done breaking things. I'm not entirely happy with 
the tinting changes. It was nice that I could just do a set_blending, and 
have most things tint. Now I have to call different functions when tinting 
and when not.. Could the various functions just check if the tint color is 
not 0,0,0 and blend, or something?

I think it is still useful in some cases. Would be silly to rip it out for 
no reason. And I'm not sure making it dynamic is all that useful either. 
Most use cases would involve populating it with some generated data, and 
handing it to some io functions, or another allegro addon (that uses io 
functions on it).
