This means that a modified (fork?) FPGui could be made available on
probably most platforms where FPC and OpenGL are available at
(win/*nix/mac but also mobile targets/platforms like iPhone and other
through OpenGL ES).

This could potentially be useful for game developers that would like to
use a toolkit out of the box instead of developing one themselves from
