... yet.  I've made a modest amount of progress to getting it running on 
the software GL stack, and I'm hoping to land the changes for that 
before the beta change deadline on the 29th.  I've gotten it from 
"mutter crashes instantly" to "shell looks fine, windows don't paint 
correctly", but I'm still a fair way from having it totally working.

I have no idea what the UI for this will look like once it's working, or 
even if I'll have it working in time.  But I'm hoping it'll work as a 
tactical measure until we have a sane virt 3d story.
