true. image processing stuff should be portable. matrix processing is
libgsl. opengl is separate, but should be portable too.

it could be done step wize indeed. pdp core is simple and portable,
there's just a lot of nonportable legs sticking out at the side, but these
could be skipped at first.. and there's always the hard work that has gone
into gem that could be used as a cheat sheet.

this separation is almost finished design-wize. i just need to port a lot
of code to the other side of the fence.
