You're right - but I forgot to write that even though this maybe 
should/is recommended many places then I've seen a lot of opengl code on 
the internet and IMHO NOBODY does that and it'll be a lot slower to type 
that in front of all the opengl commands...

So this solution is not something I like too... But I can see some other 
people came up with good solutions, which I didn't knew about..

Thank you.
