Flipping has to be supported by the low level driver itself. For instance, although 0.9.11 will support a flipping surface, the gfxdrivers xxxFlipBuffers() may return DFB_UNIMPLEMENTED. Versions older than 0.9.11 will not support flipping nor flipping surfaces at all. So, a prelimary layer->Flip call may tell you if flipping will actually be supported even if a flipping surface was successfully created.
