What it comes down to is this:
Both Mesa and NVIDIA can manage to somehow make this work, fglrx isn't
interested in making it work. That's their good right of course, but
the consequence is that I from my side am not particularly interested
in making things work with fglrx. I'd much rather spend that time
working with the r300g and r600g people on making those drivers as
good as possible.

Now if you can justify working on this, either towards your employer
or towards yourself in your own time, I'm certainly not going to stop
you. All I care about in that regard is that any resulting patches are
up to standards. However, what I want to avoid is the situation where
I'm spending time debugging fglrx because the buildbot has test
failures there.

Looking at this from a slightly different angle, I think that if you
expect people to take buildbot results seriously, you should run it on
a configuration that's known to be solid, so that people can be
confident any failures are actual issues with the patch, instead of
e.g. fglrx or Ubuntu breaking something again.
