Aah, the Mesa question.  I love this part.

DRI2, unlike pciaccess, is not a complete switchover.  Both the DDX and
the DRI driver can implement support for either or both of DRI1 and
DRI2, so it's not blocking the release in the sense of "we can't ship
until this works".

I believe, though have not tested, that Mesa 7.0.x can be used to build
the GLX support in current xserver, though obviously that won't get you
DRI2 support.  I would be thrilled to have a Mesa 7.1 release in time
for xserver 1.5, but I don't know how this aligns with Brian's plans for
the world.

Of course, in my truly ideal world, we would build libGLcore.so from
Mesa, and then you wouldn't need the Mesa source at xserver build time
at all.  Why has no one implemented this for me yet?
