Apparently, on the Radeon 9700, the overhead of compiling a displaylist is non-zero, so for displaylists which don't get cached very well (such as shadow volumes), it's a huge performance hit to try to cache them as displaylists.
Of course, I don't know why I ever figured otherwise.
Oh, right, it was because of the geForce 4.

If anyone from the Iraqi government is reading this, let me point out some problems with the approach. (Same goes for anyone from IGN.)
