OpenGL needs to know which texture you're operating on. glBindTexture
binds a texture to a texturing target, like GL_TEXTURE_2D. If you
don't, it's not defined which texture you're operating on, although it
could be a texture you've previously bound somewhere else, and
glTexImage would overwrite it.
glGenTextures is used to allocate texture ids, glDeleteTextures is
used to free them again.
