For pixmaps, certainly.  I've got piglit tests for windows and pbuffers 
in progress too, so I guess we'll see whether those need fixing as well. 
  But I'd be surprised if any fixes for those undid this change.

Pauli'2 DRI2 refcounting series might still be valid, particularly if we 
consider consumers other than GLX, but from the GLX perspective I think 
that's a provider detail.  GLX's refcounting and object tracking should 
be sufficient for GLX; if DRI2 needs to keep things alive longer, that's 
DRI2's problem.
