If this is really the limit of your interest, OpenGL is probably way too
big a hammer to pull out. Something like PyGame would likely be far
easier to work with, as it has all the device-context-style drawing
facilities most bitmap-oriented development would need.
BTW, pyopengl-users-admin is the administrative account, you likely
wanted to send the query to pyopengl-users (copied on this message).
