(Note: I lied about the canvas. In fact, I am using the OpenGL binding supplied by JOGL. If you are unfamiliar with this API, just trust me that GLDrawables are things wot you kin draw on, and GLs are things you need fer somethin' else. The theory is the same whether it's a GLDrawable or a <insert obscure class here>.)
