One week has passed since my last mail, talking about an OpenGL 4.1 Core state 
tracker. There has been great interest and many remarks, so thanks to you all.

I write this mail to give some more information about my future proposal, and 
to say that I have not disappeared and that I'm already working. I'm currently 
browsing the whole Mesa code, not only Gallium, and even EGL and GLX code. The 
project of replacing Mesa IR with GLSL IR seems to be really interesting, and 
it seems I will apply to do that (plus some other things if I have time to do 
so, but I doubt it, as Mesa IR is really heavily used in Mesa and the Mesa 
state tracker).

I'm also reading the code to have a more precise idea about the amount of work 
needed to make a simple OpenGL 3+ Core state tracker, as an experiment during 
the following months, before the Summer of Code. This way, I will be able to 
see if it's possible and interresting.

So, thanks a lot for your replies to my previous mails, I now know what you 
want and I find that interesting.
