Pixel programs on powerbook

The 15" powerbook has a mobility radeon 9000 and according to ATI’s information it supports pixel programs (SMARTSHADER).
Do the drivers for the 15" G4 powerbook support any pixel program extension?
The apple gl developer pages says that neither GL_ARB_fragment_program nor GL_ATI_text_fragment_shader is supported by their Mobility radeon 9000 drivers.
Does this mean that I can’t use pixel programs on the 15" g4 powerbook? If not does anyone know if Apple has any intentions to support it in the future?

SMARTSHADER means GL_ATI_text_fragment_shader.

ARB_fragment_program is only supported on ATI Radeon 9500/9600/9700/9800 class hardware, or NVidia GeForce FX class hardware.

The mobility Radeon 9000 does indeed support AT_text_fragment_shader (as a quick check of the extension string should have convinced you).

Since the page doesn’t explicitly mention the mobility Radeon 9000 anywhere, I’d assume that all information pertaining to the Radeon 9000 Pro applies to the mobility version.
