Kenneth, I wasn't talking about you specifically.

You may have missed it. He said (on IRC) that he takes an exception to
breaking other drivers because we wouldn't even have the GLSL compiler
if it wasn't for the work Intel did. People are being more honest on
IRC than here. Maybe somebody else from Intel should be put in charge
of the GLSL compiler, I don't know.

I step aside from the linker matter and I don't want to have anything
to do with it, ever.
