ATI with fglrx isn't a real option either, AMD doesn't show anything
about Xorg 7.4 support. Either it takes them half a year or longer to
release a driver, or they will surprise us with a working driver within
the next two months. Either way, I don't like to delay Xorg 7.4 too long
because of non-free drivers.
