 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.
