The problem is that Qt is huge, both in size and in build time, making
almost impossible to maintain two builds just to have GL and GLES
support.

Linaro is developing a proxy library that will probably help making
the decision to use GL or GLES at runtime, but that will only be ready
for Natty+1. For Natty I'd say we could just disable OpenGL support
for applications that will break, and live with it. Using software
OpenGL on ARM is currently almost impossible, because of the lack of a
good CPU that could render it by software, so I really don't believe
people will use those applications, even if we support it for this
cycle.

What do you think?
