There are two issues:

1. It's not very obvious that users need to add themselves to the "video" group
for 3D acceleration to work.

2. The documentation states that users can add themselves to either the "video"
or "wheel" group. In my case, I was already part of the wheel group, and I
needed to specifically add myself to the video group to enable 3D acceleration
(i915 on FreeBSD-11 CURRENT).

If it's not a bug that users need to specifically be part of the video group,
then I think we need to enable 3D acceleration for anyone in the wheel group as
