The key thing about video drivers is that we need investment from users
to stimulate further development. We know the huge advantages to having
a proper foss driver, but we could do with more programmers learning the
ropes and more users contributing the more fundraising.

Anyway, that's my thought. The other is that we kick nvidia aside and
fab our own silicon graphics hardware, with blackjacks! and hookers! ;-)
