Lets see if this makes the list this time.

Now seems like a good time to move this here, thanks Graeme.  Hopefully some
of the other developers will join in.

I will grab a copy of the current code in a few minutes and start
familiarizing my self with it.

Do you have any plans yet on how you want to approach breaking up the
existing acceleration code once RandR is going?

I think for the sake of documentation it would be good to try throughly
commenting the acceleration parts of the code with doxygen comments, so then
part of the work of getting specifications for the Glamo out in the public
domain is already done.
