I played with this a while back and failed to get it to work, however
during my playing I found out that this does have some drawbacks even
if you do get it to work.  You can't get DRI working on all screens
as far as I can tell, which means that you only get accelleration on 
one.  This may not be a problem in your case, if you don't need/want
this property.
