I don't have insight as to what you're talking about on this part, but
if you have list or bug links that would be helpful. I'm sure you're
aware that most existing ARM boards lack suitable video drivers and
GNOME3 makes extensive use of accelerated video. Forcing the GNOME
developers to solve a lack of hardware support seems a bit unfair.
