[Bf-committers] BGE: FSAA request

It's an interesting topic. I think AA is a well needed feature.

In fact there is something curious about it. When I run BGE inside
Blender, if I press P it has no AA at first time.
Then I press ESC (fingers crossed to prevent a crash) and P again. And
this enable AA (and the game runs way better - probably for the cash
of the scenes).

I remember having this behaviour in a MacBookPro(NVidia 9600) running
windows XP. Blender 2.47 and beyond.
However I think it wasn't working in gameplayer ('cause I can't esc/re-run it).

I wonder if this problem/behaviour is somehow related with the FSAA
enable/disable options in control panel.
