Yes, you're right and I was about to come back here and apologize for getting it wrong.

It will be nice to have support for xorg-7.1. This doesn't change that fact the fact that NVIDIA proposed and supported changes in xorg that result in AIGLX, and it still leaves me wondering why there such bad support for their own ideas.

I'm certainly not holding my breath.
