Well, it's harder than you think it is especially when the ATI effors
are split between three different teams with different agendas

- ATI proprietary (binary) team
- xorg-ati team
- xorg-radeonhd team

They are essentially doing the same thing but with various levels of
support, architecture and resources.

I passionately hate ATI binaries since they don't work on almost any
new distribution out of the box due to either lack of kernel support
or Xorg support.  So it's pretty much useless.
