The applications should never need to know the hardware details.  The
current implementation of broken, IMNSHO.

Or do think every single programm running under X should handle different
screen depths, resultions, gfx accelerators, monitor types etc. by itself?
I think it's the job of X and the display drivers to do that.  I also think
it's the job of the audio drivers to hide the hardware differences as much
as possible.
