Well, I develop a large OpenGL visualization application for weather radar
volume data, and my G400 card would freak out and paint garbage all over
the screen whenever I loaded up some big textures.  So I was waiting for
someone to get the latest DRI stuff aptable, and I am grateful.  My recent
workaround has been to use the utah-glx stuff, but then I didn't get
antialiased fonts in KDE.
