Not that I want to see glw thrown out, but for xmakemol, I believe these
days it might make more sense to drop the OpenGL package, what do the
others think?

My opinion is that xmakemol is so bare-bone (and I regularly use it due
to that) that OpenGL is not really helping it all that much, and we have
far better visualization packages for publication-level graphics.

I will check whether the non-OpenGL version is missing any features.
