I don't even think it was really needed before. It was an item on my
TODO list to find out, but I didn't have time for it.

I'd say if possible it should be an option of libGL. libdrm needs
handling similiar to cairo's build options. OSMesa should be dropped on
the normal platforms with GLX support.

While I don't think it makes sense to split off the headers, I fully
agree that the main package should be libGL. I'm not sure whether it is
worth to split off libGLw, but at least the drivers should be separated.

I've started checking the wip packages. There will be come testing
needed to ensure nothing breaks, e.g. glitz had issues.
