[erlang-questions] wxErlang gl and glu modules conflict with esdl

Hi!

While trying Erlang R13A (and R13B snapshot) I've found that esdl
modules gl and glu don't work anymore. Their names clash with glu and
gl modules from wxErlang. May be it would be better to ship gl and glu
under some different names? It's always a bad idea to break existing
libraries which are in use by other projects (modeller Wings 3D uses
esdl and breaks if wxErlang is installed). Since gl and glu aren't
used in Erlang/OTP applications yet, it's relatively cheap to change
the modules names.

Cheers!
