Excellent! Thanks for this!

I am pretty worried with the removal of gnome fallback -- I can't see
sw rendering being usable on XO-1, and probably a lot of magic will be
required for a bearable user experience on XO-1.5.

If we were to ship a couple of XO-1 and XO-1.5s to people involved in
this fallback mode removal, who should we ship it to?
