Right; any OpenGL will have to be done in software through Mesa, since
the OLPC doesn't have any hardware 3D accel.  Floating point also isn't
one of the Geode's strong areas, though it does OK.  Probably best to
stay away from GL for now.  We may/may not actually include mesa in the
final images, since without 3D mesa is of dubious use.
