In Mesa we've decided in the past to not expose GLSL >= 1.30 on GL 2.x,
because you can't use most of the new functionality of GLSL 1.30 without
GL 3.x's APIs.

However, it would be awfully nice for glamor if Mesa drivers *could*
expose 1.30 on GL2 (if you've got integer textures, you could do
glamor_font.c's accelerated core text rendering, for example), so I'm
tempted to take the patch for now so we can start working toward that.

but I'll give others a chance to offer input on this.
