I suggest you read up on what's happening with the DRI project before
DRM and the framebuffer will learn to share in Linux 2.5, and 2D/3D driver
seperation from X dependence will ensure that the DRI will be available for
multiple platforms and varying environments.
Of course, OpenGL runs on the framebuffer currently anyway...
