It's not quite as simple as saying that Glamo is to blame for
everything. Consider for example that GTK is loads faster on Xglamo
than xf86-video-glamo - there's clearly some influence of the driver
here. Of course the speed would be higher if the chip performed better,
but there are some problems that prevent us from getting the best out of
what we do have.
This kind of problem exists even on "real" graphics hardware...
