Anti-alias

First off, thanks for a great windowing library! :slight_smile:

However I am experiencing some strange behavior at window creation when using
anti-aliasing. The window first appears briefly and then swiftly closes and
just then again it reappears. Is there some testing going on to see if anti-
alias is supported, is this expected behavior? It can be pretty annoying when
opening a fullscreen window; this sets the focus to the desktop and the
program is left in the taskbar.

Sadly, yes, it is expected and required, due to the way the WGL API works. We
need to create a non-AA context in order to get access to the extensions we
need to create the AA context.
