Lots of OpenGL-ctypes hacking (Moving towards a reasonably operational system on Win32)

Sat down and forced myself to work on the OpenGL-ctypes project today (instead of enjoying the weather). The Linux port is almost there (at least on amd64 and CVS ctypes). The Win32 port is now limping along with missing pieces, rather than being totally nonfunctional.
