Kester Maddock has been using GLEW for the game engine in tuhopuu2. Granted, 
the code is quite old and probably unusable by now, but it might help.


PS: digging through those old commit messages I also noticed that Kester was 
the guy who worked on stereo support in either tuhupuu2 or tuhopuu3. Somebody 
recently asked for that feature, so I though I'd share my findings.
