The extension isn't supported yet. Note that the extension is still under heavy development which is why it isn't supported. If it was there would be two or more versions of it which software developers would have to support.

It's a tad confusing though that we can't get our nVidia cards to work with a showcase nVidia supported project without Mesa LD_PRELOAD hackery.

Which isn't to say that you're logic is flawed - it's not at all.

Also I'm grateful that 8756 allows my new card to run at all, and more so that I can run Xgl at all

Hah! From 8756's README.txt:

Quote:
The NVIDIA driver does not yet support the GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap
extension. This extension is used by OpenGL-based composite managers, such as
Novell's Compiz, to use X pixmaps as OpenGL textures. Support for the
GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap extension will be provided in a future NVIDIA
driver release.
