PyOpenGL uses ctypes for a 145% performance improvement

Following last month’s POGL vs PyOpenGL benchmark, Graphcomp received numerous suggestions from the Python community on ways to improve PyOpenGL’s numbers. Most made no measurable difference - however, the suggestion to use ctypes (a Python Foreign Function Interface module) resulted in a 145% improvement in PyOpenGL performance.
