Hello there,

given that the largest bottle neck in
applications is the bandwidth would it
be possible to introduce a glColor1[...] type
function to specify a luminosity value
for the current vertex rather than calling
glColor3[...]

eg

glColor1b(255);

would be the same as

glColor3b(255,255,255);

and simularly add this functionallity to
glColorPointer etc.

I dunno... wouldn't make much sense for interleaved vertex formats, because you'd almost certainly waste the "saved" memory as alignment padding, but for disjoint arrays it might work.

On a sort-of-related note, I did wonder semi-seriously whether a glVertex1 might make sense for vertex programs acting as functions of one variable... probably not.
