Which is why the driver isn't used by default for anything.  You have to
_know_ about it and _knowningly_ enable it in your config.

maybe adding a warning when turning it on in system-config-display might help?
a popup like "if you are using this driver your computer might explode; you have been warned!"
well not this but something similar (someone who doesn't know what he is doing wouldn't enable it in xorg.conf)
