Remote OpenGL

I have just discovered, through the x11-users at mailing list, that Xorg deprecated some software component (IGLX?) necessary for remote OpenGL viewing. Such mode of operation, using a client desktop/workstation to connect to remote powerful HPC workstations or clusters, with graphic rendering on the client, is widely widespread in the scientific community. I use it intensively daily, using OS X and Linux clients and servers. Losing this functionality would be dramatic to me and many colleagues I know, and to the scientific community.

Please do not break this!
Thank you in advance, and retrospectively for the nice tools I have been using for long.

Best regards,

Laurent Lamalle
