I've started that work; glitz has some limitations which are an issue at
present -- it appears to work only with 24bit visuals.  I added a 24 bit
visual to my X server (which runs in 16 bit mode) through the compositing
mechanism, so at least things work now.  But, we'll certainly need to 
figure out how to support 15 and 16 bit visuals with glitz in the future; 
the whole world isn't 24 bits (yet).

I've got an X server stubbed out and will start plugging in the basic GL 
initialization before monday.  Then I can add simple rendering code and 
start figuring out how to hook glitz into the system.  I should have 
answers in a day or so.
