That's a good idea.

My original point is pretty much moot now, the most recent patch in #377 lets 
you load any of the permutations (glx and dri in either order, glx only, dri 
only, or neither) with reasonable behaviour - or at least the same behaviour 
as the old loader.  As it turns out, libdri without libglx will never touch 
any of the glx-dependent code in libdri, because the app won't be able to 
create a GL context.
