While David Airlie and Alex Deucher were busy with implementing Textured Video in xf86-video-ati and even R500 and RS90 Textured Video support, those in Brussels for FOSDEM that are involved with X.Org had -- a good -- dinner. Among those that had attended were the RadeonHD developers, the Nouveau crew, AMD's John Bridgman, Jerome Glisse, Keith Packard, and others. Cheers.
