Yeah, working on it.  I've got a change in the queue that satisfies the 
desiderata of "makes clutter conform and piglit run without exploding". 
  And unlike before, this one I think I can actually justify as being 
correct.  See the "context tag" patch in the next series for details.

The downside is that it still doesn't completely address under-bound 
contexts, which is going to need either some Mesa work or a rather gross 
hack in the server to fix.  Either Mesa needs to be taught how to 
incompletely bind a context (which I think we need anyway for strict 
conformance to one of the FBO extensions), or you need to do a rather 
disgusting hack in the server of creating a dummy drawable that matches 
the fbconfig and binding that to the context when under-bound.

But that particular bug isn't directly something I need to solve to make 
progress here, so.  Who feels like taking on a challenge?
