I don't think Mesa should be considered to be that special. There are
expected to be many other OpenGL implementations that would have the
same problem and it would be a mess to copy headers into all of them. It
could also be used by other non-GL toolkits that want to share buffers
via SHM or via some remoting protocol or whatever.

The event queues are already exposed in the API so I don't see this as a
major change. But I'm happy to agree to differ :)
