of course I didn't mean the libOSmesa line has to be dropped.

meaning, you should not receive a "foobar symbol not defined" kind of
error from the dynamic linker.

just a note for this hypothetical foolish soul: "Replaces" doesn't
work. NVidia's glx module is called "libglx.so" and is a shared
"library". XFree86's glx module is called libglx.a and it's an ar
archive. In the current state, these hypothetical packages should
divert xserver-xfree86's libglx.a. Branden, with this information in
mind it's up to you if you want to move the glx module to the xlibgl1
package, personally I don't think I would bother.
