[Oberon] VESA code removed in Bluebottle?

VESA Support has been simplyfied with Bluebottle's new bootloader!

Try Init="11A" or "11B" for instance and your display will probably show up with a higher resolution.

If you need to know how to figure out what VESA modes your graphic adapter supports, let us now.

in NO there was a module DisplayLinear.mod with a lot of VESA-Code for 
selection of diplay properties.

In current stable release of Bluebottle there is module 
AosDiplayLinear.mod without any VESA-Code, and I cant find another 
module containing some VESA stuff. Seem that currerntly only 
hardcoded display-mode 1024x768 at 60 Hz is supportet.   

Does someone know the reason why VESA-Code is removed?
