Really? I always thought that libGL was the "piece" doing the real work 
behind fglrx.  I wonder if this means one can be simultaneously testing 
fglrx and radeon without the need of constantly (un)installing fglrx. This 
would certainly encourage people to test the various ATi drivers.



PS: Sorry, Timo, I just found I didn't reply to the list, but to you.
