patch to report software or hardware rendering

Here's a simple patch that reports (for windows only) the level of hardware
support. Tested with netmeeting (under win2k with nvidia hardware), it reports
software, otherwise reports hardware. It should also report if
GENERIC_ACCELERATED is found, but I don't have a system with an MCD driver. 

I'm not really sure this is where it belongs. I put the check next to where we
print out the renderer and extensions, since that seemed like a logical place
for the output to appear. As noted in the comment, this actually only applies
to the camera window context, not the other opengl contexts which are created.
If you would like to see it somewhere else in the code, or some other action
than just printing in the console, just let me know.

Interesting side note, netmeeting does indeed disable *all* hardware
accelerated pixel formats. I shudder to think what undocumented API microsoft
uses to do that that.
