  Both these packages work fine for me.  Does "release-critical" mean "doesn't
work for one user of the distribution"?

  Are we seriously suggesting removing mesa and everything depending on it?  I
take enough flak about Debian being out-of-date and featureless as it is..

  Anyway, I don't have trouble compiling against mesa itself and the programs
that are compiled against it run fine.  The demos shipped with this program
don't compile because the Makefile is extracted from an Automake tree and
therefore broken, but Crystal Space compiled last time I tried.  If this
"widgets-dev" library is a problem, why not just disable it in the Mesa build?
