Proof-of-concept: Running Piglit on Wayland and X11/EGL

I have been working for several weeks to enable Piglit to run on more
platforms (Wayland, X11/EGL, Android) and to make OpenGL ES tests first-class
citizens in Piglit. (For the Wayland folks, Piglit is Mesa's OpenGL test suite).

There's still much work to do, but I wanted to announce this early because,
unexpectedly, several people have already shown interest.

Current Status:
I have a proof-of-concept Piglit branch [1] that runs under GLX, Wayland, and X11/EGL.
The window system is chosen with a runtime switch. Android isn't finished yet. There
are bugs, of course; this is only a proof-of-concept.

If you care about my motivation for doing this, see this discussion on the piglit list archive.
