True, no opengl stuff in Lua, have to get an external library.

Then require("opengl") should work, if the opengl.so is in the Lua 
package path (including next to your .pd_lua file).  At least I managed 
to load a test package into pdlua and list its contents..

could be replaced by

function testgl1:in_1_gem_state(atoms)

replaced by

function testgl1:render()
   max = math.max(self.max, 1)

or so.
