Wouldn't it be better if one just uses another variable for the ES
version ? This way all the logic can go away, and things will
look/feel more straightforward/plain ?

I'm guessing that this approach may cause some headaches if we somehow
use both OpenGL ES and OpenGL (via separate threads, , process A
spawning process B or otherwise). For example steam game foo uses
OpenGL ES, and one tries to access the Chromium based browser (cef)
via the Overlay. The latter of which using API_OPENGL_CORE iirc.

It's your call either way. I thought I'd let you know.
