That sounds good.

In particular it's important for this project to continue making an
effort so that users won't be enticed to use a DX implementation when
there's an OpenGL one, even if the author thinks the former is more
common / convenient / whatever.  He sounded a bit lax there - users
are hurt when they use proprietary software, even if they own
OpenGL-deficient hardware :p
