Please tell me this only influences the specific application.
I don't want to suddenly loose all hardware acceleration for all applications just because one of them wants to go soft.

These vairables (mainly EGL_SOFTWARE was important) only influence the specific application.

No, as they were meant for the clients, you do not need to restart the compositor.
