I'm all for progress, but my poor system is progress-challenged and
doesn't properly support OpenGL, apparently (Slackware Linux system,
GeForce4 440MX video)... when I try to start the frontend with the
latest master it just crashes X. Now, I am perfectly happy to use the
-O override to keep things running on my system, at least until I have
a chance to move into the 21st century... but it appears that
MythWelcome ignores the flag and continues to insist on trying to use

Any chance of MythWelcome being updated to respect the flag, or am I
just using it wrong? :)
