Well it's just personal experience modulo system factors. It doesn't 
even need to be Xorg itself, e.g. scheduler/kernel improvements, IDE DMA 
(I didn't have it for a while due to chipset/kernel issues), gfx drivers 
all play a role here. And xorg's design isn't particularly suited to 
avoid those pitfalls, at least as it is now.
So if I can strike out the side effects of such things on acceleration I 
do it - no need to ask who's the culprit.
