My point was that some platforms may support more than one type of windows. 
X11 output may work on Windows (since Xlib supports Win32) and OSX. And with 
a little bit of work, the MSW output could be handled through libwine (the 
DirectX output _almost_ compiles on Linux). So this commit is wrong.

Worse, it assumes sizeof(int)>=sizeof(void *) which is NOT true on 64-bits 
OSX. Instead a separate drawable-agl should be added on OSX, as far as AGL 
really is OSX specific.
