No, runtime is probably doable but the rendering methods are widely
different -- the easiest method would be to just simple install both
and have a wrapper script that launches the appropriate binary.
However, I don't like there. The problem is that we have to maintain
two rendering engines. If this were a project supporting just one
game, that would be something worth considering but the proposition of
having two entirely different rendering engines for every game in our
module makes me unhappy.

3D should work everywhere and if it doesn't, it's a bug. I've have a
cell phone in my junk electronics pile that's 4 years old that has
working 3D acceleration.
