Sure. All I'm saying is that as far as Wine is concerned, we wouldn't
use that kind of undocumented hack. There would have to be a proper GL
extension offering compressed formats but not runtime compression /
decompression. That doesn't necessarily mean you won't be able to
convince other Mesa developers that this is a good idea, just that
usefulness to Wine isn't one of the arguments.
