Hmm, "endless"?

    * Python (with ctypes, standard on everything >= 2.5)
    * OpenGL (standard on almost every Win32 machine save old Win95 boxes)

Possibly I'm missing something here?  If you just want PyOpenGL you only
need one file (the PyOpenGL package) + Python.  If you want to use it
with Numpy, you need to have numpy on the machine, same for GLUT, GLE
and the like, but they aren't required unless you want to use them. 
Heck, if you want you can even easy_install the package last I checked.

My dictionary's definition of endless must be broken ;) :) ,
