Xgl in Dapper

I think that adding an option in GDM could also be very useful in the long
Think when Xgl will be the default Xserver. What about people with old
hardware without 3D acceleration ?
An installation auto-detect (for a sane default) + a GDM option to override
this default (people with 3D acceleration that don't want Xgl or people
without it that want to try it) could trully be the solution.

So perhaps it worths investigating it...
