Yeah. While I wouldn't go out and buy nvidia cards I have a couple in systems
I got as scrap and it would be nice to have 3d on them. I don't trust the
nvidia stuff not to screw things up for helping test the nouveau drivers,
so I have been stuck with only 2d support for a good chunk of F12's

The nouveau guys have made a surprising amount of progress and I think there
is a good chance they will have good 3d support 2 or 3 releases down the road.
(Though I would like to see Red Hat help out more to cut this to 1 or 2
releases, since I think the current situation hurts Fedora.) I'd also
like to see people move away from Cg and use the free and more portable
