A few months ago I added a 'winediag' channel which tries to detect
incorrectly setup opengl drivers. It catches situations but I didn't
know that 'direct rendering=yes' can also mean software rendering.
That's a case I still need to add.

I still think it would make sense to have a 'wglinfo' in Wine.
