Thank you for taking ownership of HOpenGL!

I would like to make a formal request for there to be *some* way to get
access to either


or that


re-export the newtype wrappers it places around CDouble and CFloat.

As things stand the only way to work with them is to pointlessly round-trip
through rational or pray that GHC is smart enough to automatically convert
once it sees through the newtype, which it isn't, potentially costing me
orders of magnitude of performance in tight loops in exchange for
implementation freedom the current OpenGL bindings do not use on any
