Well, they should be more applicable to SFB+ than to SFB from what
I understand, but each rev of the cards introduced more features
so some accelerations will have to be rewritten using more primitive
features and some will have to be simply turned off.
X does have a framework for this sort of thing, though, so it should
all be possible given time.
