Blittable - now that's a word!

As i saw this word being used with blittable and non-blittable datatype
i couldn't help but laugh... who comes up with this stuff??

Blittable types are datatypes that don't require conversion when passed between managed and unmanaged code while
non-blittable datatypes are represented differently in managed and unmanaged code.

Back the old days, it was common to refer to a memory copy operation as a 'block transfer'. This was sometimes abbreviated as BLT (there's actually a BLT instruction on the PDP-10) and pronounced 'blit'. The term 'blittable' is a useful invention that expresses whether it is legal to copy an object using a block transfer. Sometimes a concept comes up enough that you just need to invent a new word, you know?

No, seriously can someone find the root of this word and its history. I saw what "coder unknown" wrote but I can't find any link myself from the history he cited to this word.
