Hi Campbell,

The proposed changes won't break things for any platform. Upgrading to GL
3+ (later) will leave Mac in the dust until we pare it down to core profile
-- so definitely branch for that.

As for the cleanup - is it enough to search code for known deprecated API

I don't know of any way to catch these at build- or runtime. Grepping for
ARB or EXT should catch most of these.
