Yeah, I'm not so keen on doing all of this post-beta.  We've got enough
stability problems with F10 as it is.  This honestly feels like one of
those features that just isn't 'testable' by Beta, and thus needs to
enact the contingency plan.


How do things look for that contingency plan.  Is it even possible at
this point?

If we're not going to enable it by default, I would rather the modesetting code be included, but disabled by default, and let users enable it on the kernel command line.
