We need to start hounding on AMD to publish the developer

Besides, chances are it's not Meyer who's making these decisions (re:
proprietary hardware / NDA-only documentation), but a few select
individuals at ATI who are fuelled off of paranoia (the most common
defence being fear nVidia/other competitors will "steal their
technology"). Really sounds like the decision of a legal dept. and not
a CEO.

Hounding on AMD won't help right now regardless; they're still finding out what kind of mess they've acquired, making changes to it is a long way off. :)
