I have in mind a support for software rendering, so that yade will
work somehow better without graphic acceleration. But things,
unfortunately, have priorities. So I don't know when this will happen.

My first step will be to contact qglviewer author, and ask if he is
willing to accept a patch to his code, that will allow seamless
integration of switching between software and hardware rendering.

Hm, I can ask now :-) Will do.
