Sure, but actually it's already supported by Leo.

It covers all GMA models from 810 to 3100 and will probably be updated for future models.

It 1st of all allows not supported models to work in both tiger and leopard (GMA 8XX aren't supported, 915 is only in tiger, dunno about newer models and tiger, GMA 3000 doesn't work with leo afaik)

No we have the tools, we only need the man who'll make it :D

This is like, an early christmas present! I'll still be waiting until the Macworld Expo to see if there's a possibility of getting a native driver for GMA 4500, but if not, I'll probably start working on actually writing a driver myself. If anyone's interested to help, please let me know.. and perhaps point me to the documentation concerning the driver architectures for OS X.

I'm getting giddy.. :)

boy it sure would be nice if there was a driver that allowed for Quartz Extreme using the GMA 4500.
