    Based on the XDC2012 talks, it seems that indirect rendering will be fully dropped.

    I'm sure there will be a replacement, but I don't think anyone knows exactly what it will be yet.

    And you think the current (DRI2) way of opening a GEM handle works over a network? You know this is about DRI, the Direct Rendering Interface, which so far has never worked over a network. It's not like the X.Org devs have some secret plan to piss off everyone by removing network transparency, please think before posting anything about this topic.
