Well, if you go this way, that means writing an almost complete (except for
texturing) OpenGL implementation of the geometry pipeline.

This is why I did it (for the only application actually using it) via the
current 'hack'.

After, one can always imaging lifting code from Mesa or TinyGL to do that,
but I would really investigate if the current hack is not enough for all
games out there.
