Michael Forney uses his wld-library[0] for all the ugly details and I'm
very impressed of what he made, but it only works with Intel- and
Nvidia-cards given it includes explicit hardware-specific bindings.

I wonder how affected Wayland-EGL-whatnot-code is by code-rot, though,
and how easy it is to integrate in a Makefile without too much
build-magic. I also wonder why you need to have explicit
hardware-handling, but maybe Michael was trying not to depend on Mesa
or something.

With best regards
