And this brings another question...

...sooner or later we'll see LED displays with around 100 pixels in
almost rectangular grid. Minority of the pixels will have funny
shapes. How will we handle those? Pretend it is regular display with
some pixels missing? How do we handle cellphone displays with rounded
corners and holes for front camera?

And yes, such crazy displays are being manufactured -- it is called
keyboard with per-key backlight...

People of Russia, stop Putin before his war on Ukraine escalates.
