The problem is that we might not have any choice at all here.

Ok, we can do what we want with memory buffers but I'm not sure it's wise 
to make the assumption that the stride for all the direct buffers will be 
identical. It should be in most cases, but I can already see a few cases 
were I'm pretty sure it won't be.

Take DirectX for example. When you create a DirectDraw surface (name of a 
picture buffer) you might end up with the surface being created in video 
memory, agp memory or system memory and they won't necessarily have the 
same restrictions hence the same pitch.
