That was the way I thought it would work, but when reading:

I though that glx would be implemented on top of mesa-solo within
xserver and the xserver would then use glitz on top of this glx
implementation somehow.

    xserver(glx impl.)
        glitz(glx backend)
            xserver rendering

instead of:

    glitz(mesa-solo backend)
        xserver rendering

but, I'm confused :P
which way is it?
