In my opinion parsing of the log file is very unreliable and second you
aren't 100% sure if the card drawing the opengl stuff is the same as this
card. (a X session can be using multiple cards)

When using NV-CONTROL only for use on Nvidia cards you are 100% sure that
the detected amount of VideoRam corresponds to the current card rendering
the opengl stuff. (NV-CONTROL is a X api and you need to provide it with a X
display and screen number; this is the same info you have somewhere in Wine)
I prefer to use a generic way but that way doesn't exist. Doubt alexandre
would accept a log file parse thing. Not even sure he would accept
NV-CONTROL code either but think the chance is quite bigger that he does.
