I blame the acronyms.

xgl, xglx, glx, aiglx ... <head starts to spin> ... then direct vs. indirect rendering and accelerated vs. non-accelerated direct/indirect rendering ... <head spinning more>

How can you NOT be misinformed.

sorry, does this mean that you expect the API to be broken again by X.org with the 7.2 release?

this would tally with what micheal from Phronix has said.

Xorg 7.2 will feature some big rewrites of X configuration. You will be able to add lets say new input devices on the fly without having to restart X and a lot more things in this area. These modernizations MIGHT change the way drivers interact with X and because of that could require an ABI change. Development of xorg 7.2 is already quite far and if there hasn't been an ABI change at this stage, then it likely won't come.
