Actually, I don't see us maintaining OGL. We don't have the manpower to
do that.

I'm wondering if we really need OGL. What do we use it for? because if
it's now out of wxWidgets and if it's an important component for us, we
aren't probably alone. What do the other guys do? Moreover, if they got
rid of it, it's also probably because they don't need it, meaning we
could use something else, available in wxWidgets 2.9 that would replace
OGL. That would be a really better way than maintaining a fork of OGL.
