First off, let me say that I'm an opengl novice, I know very little about it.
runs a trivial opengl app, but probably with the default
opengl, which might not be the platform's high-performance opengl. is a real
app that bundles the raspberry pi's high-performance opengl
userspace driver into the snap;
that's the kind of thing I'm looking for.

I would be impressed if someone did a single snap that
did high performance opengl on both Pi 3 and Artik 10.
Seems unlikely.

I have a Pi but not an Artik myself, just looking around at
the other hardware Ubuntu Core supports.
