It's still not clear.  I have nvidia cards.  In one case I'm using the 
proprietary drivers.  In another case, the nouveau driver.  Is this a 
useful driver for me?  We need to tell the users where this is applicable.

Since the driver appears to be card specific, the section needs to be 
moved to the Xorg drivers similar to the Glamor EGL driver.

I'll ask the same questions about libvdpau.  I suspect it's HW specific, 
but what hardware?  This too needs to be in the Xorg drivers section.
