I'm all for getting rid of unneeded glGet calls. Really, we should strive
to only use glGet calls in initialization type functions since they slow
down normal program execution. If we really need to save a value, we should
use the (deprecated) glPush/PopAttrib, or use EXT_direct_state_access[0] to
avoid the issue entirely.
