Well, I know that the KDE group will have an accelerated Xserver for KDE 4 at some point, but I also know that if they're on board with the XGL code that Dave is publishing, the time frame for implementing that accelerated server will be significantly smaller. The other major question is what will happen to kompmanager. kompmanager is not an OpenGL based composite manager, so assuming they did adopt the XGL server, will the KDE group adopt Dave's new composite manager or rewrite kompmanager so that it is XGL compatible.
