Well, you could use the failover module to use softpipe for fallbacks,
but no one does, for the following reasons:
1. Modern hardware doesn't need any software fallbacks, and at most
you need to "emulate" things with ad-hoc shaders (possibly compute
2. Software fallbacks are mostly useless because a terribly slow
implementation is not significantly more useful than a broken uone
