We want to be able to provide OSMesa support even if vtk was not built
To accomplish this, we are currently trying:
1) overriding vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow with our own OSMesaRenderWindow
2) overriding vtkOpenGLExtensionManager class with an 'osmesa' one,
which allows us to use OSMesaGetProcAddress without
VTK_OPENGL_HAS_OSMESA being defined.
We need vtkgl::LoadExtension to be exported, so that VTK will use the
mesa extensions when using our window.
