Right, that's great.

I think it's relatively common to say mistakenly "EGL" when one means
"EGL + OpenGL ES". But indeed it's important to map whether GLX should
be used instead, or in addition, and if there any problems with that.

The discussion in this thread is about creating, among else, the
currently non-existing accelerated 3D support for Glamo. So naturally
there is no hw 3d acceleration in android currently. There is probably
also no 2D acceleration in Neo+Android currently, just framebuffer

But indeed, does someone happen to know what Android actually would need? EGL?

^ From there it would look like they use powervr proprietary EGL +
OpenGL ES driver, so for android those would be needed.
