D3D10 itself isn't used that much yet, most current D3D10 applications
also have a D3D9 renderer. However, our d3d10 is based on wined3d,
which is also used by ddraw, d3d8 and d3d9. So wined3d has to keep
working while d3d10 is being implemented. I don't know enough about
the internal x11drv and gdi32 architecture to judge if the scale is
the same, but I suppose the concept is somewhat similar. I would of
course expect Alexandre to be much more strict wrt. winex11.drv than
wined3d since it's a much more critical component. I'd also expect
reputation / experience with winex11.drv and gdi32 to be taken into
account. I.e., trust, if you like.
