I completely agree with Vlad. I have been dealing with the issues of 
mixing Java2D rendering and M3G rendering on the same Java Canvas for 
some time now. It really does complicate the implementation and brings 
little benefit, especially when you have shaders. Most of the fancy 
pixel twiddling done by the sequence of APIs Greg used as an example can 
be achieved in WebGL with shaders and framebuffer objects.
