Thanks, is there any non-GNOME use case that benefits from DRI 2? 

I assume that <https://wiki.freebsd.org/GraphicsOld/DRI3> is stale but not yet
<https://wiki.freebsd.org/CategoryStale> categorised as such. 

What's the simplest possible concise explanation of preferring 2 instead of 3? 

(I see <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_Rendering_Infrastructure#DRI3> but
trying to interpret that in normal order, let alone in reverse (2 instead of
3), is quite mind-bending.)

directs readers to <https://dri.freedesktop.org/> but then (sorry) it's not
clear which path to take; <https://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/CategoryFaq/> is a
scattering of things. 

Here in Bugzilla is not the best place for explanations, so maybe someone can
edit something temporarily into <https://wiki.freebsd.org/Graphics> or
<https://wiki.freebsd.org/Gnome> pending more formal edition into (I guess)
