Yes, I think so.

Yes. The issue is that __DRIscreenRec::api_mask does not reflect the real APIs
supported. It always has __DRI_API_OPENGL set if a driver does not override
it. But this is probably minor.

I am not a fan of having generated sources in git, but I don't have a strong
opinion here. Especially when I do not have a better solution :)
Ideally, I would like to have python a requirement for developers. And those
sources are generated when making a release tarball so that python is not a
requirement for users.

The branch has a dispatcher generator called mapi (multiple-api, in contrary to
gl-api). It is simple and easy to set up. I use it to create an OpenVG
dispatcher (see the commit "mapi: Add vgapi.").
glapi dispatcher consists of
1) current dispatch/context management
2) a C version of the dispatcher
3) several assembly versions of the dispatcher
In the branch, I do not use mapi to replace glapi dispatcher yet. Instead,
only 1) of glapi dispatcher is converted to use mapi. The plan is to have the
branch reviewed and merged, and then convert 2) to use mapi. And once mapi has
every assembly dispatcher currently in glapi, I can then convert 3) to use
I am out of town next week. I would like to post the branch for review once I
