Well. What's missing from the NIR path is:

(1) GS and tess (the ABI parts only)
(2) re-adding some minor extensions (shader_group_vote?)
(3) fixing all the bugs -- it's been a while since I've done a piglit 

There's a bunch of unknowns, so it's hard to say, but once we're there 
16-bit should be much easier, so may be worth it.

Lerne, wie die Welt wirklich ist,
Aber vergiss niemals, wie sie sein sollte.
