You probably don't need the sub-pixel ordering stuff :-)

Do you want a request to list the available DRI2 types?

I don't think we want the window position in the GetBuffers request,
that makes the buffers 'obviously' independent of position.

Oh, and some checking to make sure the remaining 'randr' wording is
cleaned up.

It would also be nice to see some additional description about how this
works with GEM.
