Is src/driclient still useful today?  I know that DRI1 is still around, but 
src/driclient hasn't been touched in two years, and I thought I read that it 
had been replaced by newer code (i.e. it's obsolete even for DRI1).  I may be 
mistaken.  Reading the history, I'm not clear what it was meant to accomplish.

Do we want to keep it, or can we remove it from the tree?
