[Python-modules-team] pyopengl accelerator

I have a debian package for the "pyopengl accelerator"
which I'm hoping can find a home in debian.
I've been experimenting with blender and makehuman.
The latest version of blender wanted a newer version of
makehuman, and so I experimented with the "pure python"
version of makehuman. That uses pyopengl, but it complains
about a missing opengl accelerate package. Finding *that*
package was a non-trivial effort, and while it turns out to be
optional for makehuman, it does seems to make it run a lot faster.
( The 1.0.0alpha6 version of makehuman probably won't benefit. )
I'm not sure what other packages in debian might benefit
from this, but I'm hoping there are some.
Home page for this,
Bad refs about makehuman & opengl accelerate,
I had hoped for a good reference saying this makes makehuman better,
but apparently the pure python version is still pretty bleeding edge.
What I have,
Please free to use whatever part (or none) of this as you please.
