It's more of a DRI/GLX problem than a Mesa problem.
Allen's suggestion of making a variety of FBConfigs that correspond to
an X visual is probably the simplest. It would probably require some
work in the DRI/GLX code and the applications would have to use the
newer GLX 1.3 functions like glXCreateWindow and glXMakeContextCurrent
rather than the ubiquitous 1.2 functions.
