guessing wildly, I'd say this is due to the fact that PyOpenGL 3 uses
ctypes instead of native bindings, although I didn't expect it to be
that bad.

Unfortunately, I can't try out accelerated rendering on my own machine
now (thanks to some not-mentioned major graphics card vendor who is
somehow unable to put out drivers that run stable with SMP systems, way
to go!). Could you provide a small test script and some timings and I'll
try to work it out with upstream.
