Nice article.

The main pain is closeness of the specs of the modern videocards, IMHO. It's 
like killing the future of linux and similar OSes. I have to use videocard on 
a very old chip (Matrox G550), just because anything newer doesn't have open 
full-blown sourced drivers (and G550 driver isn't fullblown, but at least 
there's some room for improvement which is possible, I mean mergedfb
