I generally agree with this, except that the point about very cryptic
failure modes is so true.
This needs to be fixed in Mesa drivers - if there is a mismatch or an
error of some sort it should be reported.
For example, why does it take LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose (and not even
LIBGL_DEBUG=1) to diagnose the issue of absent *_dri.so library or wrong
permissions on /dev/dri/cardX ?
