ok, there's no need for a meso-solo backend in glitz to get xserver
running on top of GL, then. xserver will have full glx and glitz will
use that, right?

hmm, I'm not sure I understand what you mean with "rendering to two
different windows", if you're referring to the use of the root window
then you've got it a bit wrong. The root window is never used for
drawing, it's only used for making a GLXContext current so that we can
query extensions and create textures. We need a to pass a drawable to 
glXMakeCurrent, this is why we create the root window.
