I once polished out a nasty windshield scratch with cerium oxide powder mixed with water and a special hard pad using my drill. It removed the scratch, but made a shallow depression in the glass that drove me nuts - way worse than the scratch itself. You could see it from a distance too, like a strange wavy spot. I ended up replacing the whole glass. The moral is if the scratch is very light, barely able to catch your fingernail, this will work, but anything deeper and the cure will be worse than the problem.
