mesa-solo is targeted to be the backend of X on GL. So in the long run
you would not run glitz directly on it. Instead you would run Glitz on
DRI which would map to mesa-solo plus give you windowing via X.

On the other hand, this doesn't mean that people don't want to play
with glitz on mesa-solo while we are trying to get everything else working.
