I think probably not when using libGL. I don't blame Franco for not wanting to install the Mesa driver. Having to use nouveau 
for Nvidia cards is bad enough.

Relatively recently, I swapped out a Radeon card for an Nvidia hoping to get better performance; and also got the "failed to 
load nouveau.dri" errors when testing it. The performance was absolutely pathetic. I installed the Mesa driver hoping to fix the 
performance issue, and all it did was muck things up. I promptly swapped back to the Radeon card.
