Hi Phil,

I feared that day would come ... great :)

I know of two more-than-minor bugs, however I haven't had the time to file
- Problems with SRC + alpha values when rendering to surfaces without alpha,
this causes IntelliJ's editor to look garbled.
- Somewhere coordinate overflows happen with very large JTables.

I don't know if its ok to enable it anyway.

I think the only problems may be in buggy drivers, but turning it on
> will give us a chance to test and resolve remaining issues, if any :)

Currently shipping drivers are really all working very well, what could
cause problems are probably archaic installations still running early
versions of EXA or even XAA.

Thanks, Clemens
