You should know that I've been aware of OpenGL-ES while designing glitz
and almost everything glitz is using is supported by OpenGL-ES, at least
the "common" profile, "common lite" will be a bit harder. It shouldn't
be very hard to get glitz running on top of the "common" profile. No
changes to the window-system independent glitz API will be needed, which
means minimal changes to Xgl.
