Unfortunately, we got stuck with bugs that we don't know how to get out 
of. Some weird crashes at startup, that appeared for no apparent reason 
and won't disappear. I can't debug this. I don't sufficiently know about 
how to do this kind of debugging on Android.

So, in the end, it does not work, but if I had this crash fixed, we'd have 
GridFlow with at least support for PPM image format, and I'd expect to be 
not too far from having a window output. However, this would go through 
the android widget toolkit, and not OpenGL, at least for now. I expect to 
keep OpenGL support for much later. I started coding that with JNI but 
were not able to try because of the aforementioned crashes (even though I 
retried without the JNI code, etc...!).
