Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that Nvidia's hardware
accelerated OpenGL should be part of the SVGA RPM.  Wouldn't this cause
problems for those want to use Mesa, but don't have a TNT card (or have
G200 or Voodoo accelerated Mesa)?

I could go for a seperate RPM, but not in the same RPM.
