I think it is like this:

Keith needs to implement render internally in xserver and he also has to
implement xlib drawing. I believe he plans to implement render by pulling the gl
implementation of render out of glitz.

So as a first step I was trying to get this to work:

>    mini-glx
>        glitz(miniglx backend)

After that I was going to do:

> mesa-solo
>       glitz(mesa-solo backend)

This would get the code into a form the keith could directly use it.

I've already build all of the autoconf files for glitz(miniglx backend). I also
copied the -glx file in /src to -miniglx and I'm starting to modify them to make
them work. My first goal is to get glitzinfo working. My current problem is that
there is something wrong with the list of visuals being returned by miniglx.
