 How so? Haiku releases will come with a specific known Mesa release. While
 I agree that it would be nice to see that version in AboutSystem, the rest
 is pretty much useless information, unless you are really interested in
 those details. I would assume that 99% of the people in almost any room
 are not. I'm certainly not, and I have even a good idea what OpenGL is :)

 in AboutSystem instead.

 I disagree. It should be removed from the base completely. It should be
 moved into an optional package -- those that are interested in running it,
 could then just do it.

 The CPU info that sysinfo dumps is certainly useful, too, even for more
 people; it just has no place in the GUI. As the Mesa info isn't even
 machine depending but is static throughout all installations, I wouldn't
 even see the point if that information was interesting to more people.
