Ah, now I remember why I didn't do that.  Calling _ensure_gl_setup() tries to
setup the GL context which the cocoa backend needs to run stuff on the main
thread.  Deadlock ensues due to cocoa waiting for the _ensure_gl_setup to
complete which is waiting for the cocoa stuff to initialize in the main thread.

One solution is to make Cocoa multi-threaded much like the X11 backend by
initializing a dummy NSThread and not do the GL initialisation in the main
