I've been looking into this, and it seems like this should probably be
the default.  Build Mesa (I'm using 6.5.2) with -Wstrict-aliasing and
you'll see what I'm talking about.  I was reading some bug reports
where this fixed issues with compiz/beryl, like "white screen"
lockups, etc.

Just a "heads up".

"The frivolity and boredom which unsettle the established order, the
vague foreboding of something unknown, these are the heralds of
approaching change.  The gradual crumbling that left unaltered the
face of the whole is cut short by a sunburst which, in one flash,
illuminates the features of the new world."  --G.W.F. Hegel,
