Using OpenGL (custom port)

I got it working, it did turn out to be a slight error in the type 
declaration.  I had this:

typedef HGLRC function (HDC hDC, HGLRC hShareContext, in int 

And it needed to be:

typedef extern (Windows) ...everything else...

Whoops.  But I can now successfully create a 3.0 context. Yay!

You can get the latest extension headers for OpenGL from (glext.h, wglext.h, glxext.h). 
You should only need two of them, depending on the platform (I think) 
and just use the standard, old-timey gl.h from your system.  glext.h is 
huge, but pretty easy to convert if you have a regex search/replace tool.
