If you feel like unifying some code that would be appreciated.

Although, I have a greater request from you - can you look at removing
the symlinks in src/mesa/drivers/dri/r{adeon,200} ?  Pretty please :-)

Restructuring the common bits into one place (radeon_common perhaps ?)
will allow one to drop the links, and this will also cut down a fair
hunk of the classic dri module binary.

Btw did you have the chance to try 10.5 with a simple wrapper, similar
to xorg-server ? I believe that most concerns should be sorted out now -
no python, lex, etc... dependency.
