I can imagine detection being harder, though. Some cards will
seem/pretend to work, but won't, either because they are too slow or
because Mutter triggers major bugs on them.

So it might get much more messy than checking for OpenGL. Maybe a
whitelist of supported cards would have to be created, just like it was
required for Compiz (at least in Ubuntu). But I'm sure Owen can tell us
how this could work...
