==== Description: ====
Figl is a binding of the OpenGL graphics API for the GNU Guile programming

The "F" in Figl is for "foreign", as Figl is built with Guile's dynamic
foreign function interface, without writing any C at all.  This approach is
particularly appropriate for binding OpenGL, as typical OpenGL implementations
support different base versions, then add a bunch of extensions on top.  Using
the FFI lets Figl provide interfaces from later versions, but without
requiring those versions and extensions.

Figl binds all of OpenGL with a low-level binding.  It also attempts to
provide a more Scheme-friendly layer on top.  All of its interfaces are fully
