yes.. but it takes time to make it work everywhere.

since it is a direct binding to opengl, do not expect any documentation on it.
it is assumed that if you know opengl, you should be capable of doing
the rest by yourself :)

maybe context handling/initialization part needs some documenting..
but not that much.
since using FFI you can directly interact with OS and other OS-specific stuff,
anyone could actually do it in own whay (an opengl context creation),
while then use the NBOpenGL for rendering.
