You used to be able to use Mesa's glide driver with the glide DDX driver to 
get accelerated GL.  Has this been tested on the voodoo driver?

The Render acceleration in voodoo(4) is disabled, it's using the old XAA 
RenderAccel hooks which never get called anymore.  The old hooks did not have 
enough information to be conformant anyway.

Not that these are reasons to keep glide(4) around, of course.
