You really can't do fast 3D without OpenGL (not if you want to be
at least), the ONLY alternatives with hardware support are: D3D (Windoze
only), GLIDE (3Dfx only) and Mesa (OpenGL in all but name).

One thing that is utterly certain is that if any library claims it's
going to add 3D support on top of it's existing 3D support, it is
doomed to fail.  2D is a special case of 3D - and not vice-versa.
