It's only in Croquet.  Part of the issue is that the OpenGL package  
assumes that the compiler has been hacked to support positional  
arguments, so that you can write code like...

		glColor3f(1.0, 0.25, 1.0);
		glVertex3f(1.0, 2.0, 10.0);

... which looks very familiar to a C programmer, which most graphics  
programmers are.  It will look even better if we can completely get  
rid of underscore assignments so that "GLLineStrip" can become  

Why not just use the Croquet image (if not Croquet itself)?  It's  
hardly distinguishable from a 3.8 image.
