They're figuring that the SVGA driver will eventually replace S3V.  For
right now,  it's recommended that you use whichever one seems to work
better.  I've found that SVGA is a little faster with my Diamond 3D 3000,
but sometimes crashes if I try to "startx" again after exiting,  so I've
learned to run xdm/kdm...
