Hello Miguel

Yep totally agree with the "reuse".  That OpenGL is one nasty api and 
was actually hating the fact of wrapping those by hand.  I have a good 
start but ....

Finished my screen capture program this morning and got it outputting 
the image.  Just could not get that CGImageDestination to work at all so 
did it with C# api's.  Which I think you prefer.

Check the OpenTK bindings into the tree and will take a look unless you 
prefer to wait.  Have never touched OpenGL as have never needed it for 
anything on any system.
