    Further I have one last question if you would indulge
    Do the supporting libraries/interfaces differ so much that it will require apps to be recompiled/relinked to be able to run accelerated under the new environment?

    ...
    I don't know about closed driver but i think they use their own libgl so their should not be any problem.

    App doesn't need to be recompiled, this interface change are btw the mesa driver and the X server, app never see this layer directly, they call into libGL.

    I second that having a good tutorial for less experienced users about how to recompile Xorg from git would be most appreciated. I can redo drm, mesa, ddx just fine, but even following the directions here http://wiki.x.org/wiki/ModularDevelopersGuide I could never get a new xorg which worked 100%.

    Debian and other distros are also only shipping the stable Xorg branch, 1.4, so this would be nice for many reasons.

    The easiest instruction are :

    If we de have enough time to write better doc we would likely already have newest code in distrib
