r500 3D docs released + come on all you "hackers"

So AMD released r500 3D programming information today, the most interesting piece being the r500 fragment shader programming guide which allows us to maybe get r300 into some kind of shape for r500 use.

So along with the intel 965 docs, we now have 2 fairly well documented chips. So an excuse I've always heard from people turning up on irc channels is OMG I can't hack on GPU drivers there are no docs!!!. So now that we have these docs I'm expecting a large amount of developers to be able to bootstrap themselves on modern hardware. I wonder how disappointed I'm going to be.

updated: is the docs location, the newest pdf is the r500 3D engine manual.
