I see now that someone asked something similar previously on this
list, and posted an example at:


However, that example only derives QQuickFramebufferObject.Renderer,
not QOpenGLFunctions, and it has a comment `# ... Issue OpenGL
commands.` in the render() function where the GL commands would go. So
I'm still not sure how that could be turned into a working example.

Thankful for any advice, since I'm a complete OpenGL noob, and only
trying to port a C++ example that uses the
QQuickFramebufferObject::Renderer + QOpenGLFunctions pattern to PyQt.
