I heard something brief (I forget where) about graphics being integrated
into the kernel.  Do you have a source for this?  I'm just curious...

Alright.  Maybe I've got this wrong, but aren't GGI and Mesa totally
different?  I mean, GGI (simply stated) is a means of actually displaying
graphics, right?  And Mesa is a 3D library that requires something else
(like X or Glide or GGI or SVGAlib) to actually put the 2D projection of a
3D image on the screen, right?  Am I way off here?
