As I said, OpenGL is icky to work with compared to C++ API's.  I haven't
had the pleasure of working with OpenAL (but it sounds cool).  And Quake
is a tad bit primitive.... though I'd love to rip QuakeC out of it and
use it for a few things... :)

Actually, I think the only C API's I've used that I've actually liked are
GTK/GNOME are some of the libraries I'm writing for a few of my current
projects (I'm writing them in C for portability, of course, even though
I haven't the slightest idea what OTHER stuff I have to do to make them
portable... I'm OS uncultured, I suppose.  ;-)
