Actually, I've been surprised to find over the course of my benchmarking
recently that apps *do* use 1.30 features, successfully, based on only
the presence of GLSL 1.30. An example is nexuiz:
MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=2.1 INTEL_DEBUG=wm mesagl nexuizd |& grep txd
shows it using derivatives.
MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=120 MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=2.1 INTEL_DEBUG=wm mesagl nexuizd |& grep txd
