What was it Tesla said, "My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.

Jesus, if only more developers would invoke this carnal knowledge.
Wow. That is the most irrelevant comment I've ever seen. We're building drivers for hardware, and the hardware changes. i810 hardware is completely different from i965 hardware. There is no interface that could magically work well for both. As always, patches welcome.
