Ideally. Of course if the OF driver works you can use that until a
native one is there. For a lot of reasons I would much prefer that
BOTH methods work. OF client interface right now is too slow to
make a usable machine out of, but it is a starting point before
you have native support. If you find a bug in the OF client interface
functions, tell us about it! If it does something you don't expect
or don't see on other platforms, tell us about it! :)
