Somewhere in this thread (before the last NV-CONTROL mail) I proposed to use
it too. Nvidia-settings itself is licensed under the GPL some time before I
wrote an alternative NV-CONTROL library which I use in my program (NVClock).
I could simplify it and allow it to be used in Wine but as said in my last
email connecting OpenGL to more lowlevel info is hard as you don't have much
info to 'combine' the two. (for instance the renderer string can't be used
to check for the videocard as the device string is useally different, the
only thing that can be the same is the vendor name ...)
