gdebugger has a trial for 7 days and is cross-plataform. The price is not
cheap ($790 Node Locked and $2450 Floating - * Linux has only floating) but
I believe they are other tools out there that can do similar and are open
software. Not sure about interface, performance, ...

> When I find time I'll try to run it on simple BGE demos. I have a feeling
> that this can help to fix some bugs we have (e.g. alpha flickering). Also
> from a user perspective, that sounds as a handy tool to help
> game optimization (assuming we can tackle the main BGE GL problems that may
> be present).
> Maybe an interesting GSOC for someone? (to implement openGL Rasterizer
> profile and fix/optimize BGE openGL errors)?
> Cheers,
