    These users I would expect to use a 3D card with open source drivers,
    since correctness is more important than performance in these
    situations.

    I am more interested in using hw-accelerated 3D for GUIs for audio
    apps. It's by far the cheapest way to update banks of meters, etc. A
    binary only 3d driver is out of the question, it's hard enough to get it
    all to work when you have the source...
