I don't think it does... Also the card might be in a pretty good shape at that point. Namely VBO support might be getting in and DRI2 should definitely be in at that point. Hmm, I was under the impression r300 was at OpenGL 1.4 and nearing 1.5. The jump from 1.5 to 2.0 is *big* though. Probably won't happen before Gallium3D.
