No, I mean what happens you if you build a driver from, say,
mesa_7_4_branch and use it with libGL that has your patches applied.
The compile-time check won't cut it.

Having this ability would allow us to advertise some fbconfigs with
GLX_SWAP_METHOD_OML = GLX_SWAP_COPY_OML. We obviously don't have any
apps that use that today, but I can think of a couple that should. :)
