This topic is interesting: should all opensource backend drivers be put
into the tree?

But as Kyle has mentioned earlier, Incubator is not the place to discuss
in-tree / out-tree for 3rd vs. built-in drivers, but the place to bake
newly introduced API and resource model for fast iteration, so I'll forward
this topic in another thread.
