That involves either:

* replacing the current compositor with a GL-based one; or

* adding a second GL-based compositor and doing a fallback to the
current one if the GL-one can't work; or

* fixing X to do fast blitting with the current compositor

Seeing as 2d acceleration seems to be in worse shape than 3d one, the
first two options seem better at least in the short term.
