I haven't tried it (yet), but is there already or are there plans for 
array support?  The begin/vertex/end-style usage has been deprecated / 
disrecommended in OpenGL for quite a while as far as I know (though I 
doubt the interface will be removed in the foreseeable future); the 
newer interfaces are more like:


It would seem a natural fit if you could draw from grids in that way, 
and it has much less overhead.  Unchanging geometry could be stored on 
the GPU using buffer objects for another potential speed boost, too.
