      Description

      In Debian we are having a discussion whether to build Qt with -opengl desktop or -opengl es2 on ARM64 (aarch64) and some other architectures.

      There are users which want the desktop implementation (for desktops and some boards), and there are users who want the OpenGL ES implementation (for mobile devices and other boards).

      We are currently considering shipping two (conflicting) sets of Qt libraries, but it would be nice if there was an option to select OpenGL at runtime, based on environment variable or commandline flag (via dlopen or some other mechanism).
