I wonder if logging is unnecessary verbose by default. For example the
following command

    python -c 'import logging; logging.root.setLevel(logging.DEBUG); import OpenGL; from OpenGL.GL import GL_VERSION, GL_EXTENSIONS;'

merely print

    No handlers could be found for logger "OpenGL.acceleratesupport"

and somehow don't complain about "No module named Numeric"...

It is up to "pyopengl" maintainer(s) to decide and they are already
have a bug for this:
