Yes, I was hoping to get it into potato soon, the problem is that I'm not
sure how to do all the depends/replaces/conflicts/alternatives/diversions
whatever, libgl1 does not totally replace mesag3. mesag3 also contains
libMesaGLU, but libgl1 can be easily modified to build libGLU so that
probably won't be a problem.

What would be the proper way to make libgl replace the mesa libs?
