I suppose that Sean's comment was in light of both ATI and NVidia, being

provide documentation for their recent graphic card, thus meaning the
death of 3D support using free software only, and furthermore the death
of 3D support on non-x86.

Then we will have the death of the Debian operating system's 3D support, regardless of whether non-free remains in the archive. I think it is a shame if two graphic card vendors could persuade some Debian developers that the project should forever support non-free.

There was some talk about X on GL being a possible future: does that relate to this? Feel free to move this elsewhere, but please cc me.
