I already did, last night, off-list by private email, which was the
appropriate venue.

The latter is not going to help with 3D support, as it doesn't have any
(practically speaking) yet.

It's ironic that you cut out the bits of the original mail which
actually mentioned ATI and NVIDIA, and quoted the bit which talks about
Intel, which is an open source driver. Someone's suggested something for
that bug already. personally, I'd like to see 'lspci -nn' output so we
know what adapter we're dealing with.
