I'm certainly in favor of having a temporary git fork for directx
changes.  So I can just pull the patch from there anytime instead of
waiting for periodic test patches.  The periodic patches haven't
always applied cleanly either.  These improvements are big changes and
it would be nice if doing this would speed it up, since everyone could
now work together.
