Similar to SciTech GLDirect

This is similar to SciTech's GLDirect. GLDirect lets users run OpenGL applications on video cards that have poor on non-existant OpenGL support by providing an emulation or translation layer. The OpenGL calls get converted to DirectX calls on-the-fly.

//The OpenGL calls get converted to DirectX calls on-the-fly.//

This code is apparently the other way around, "DirectX 9 Application Programming Interface to OpenGL".

Hmmmm, it is "an open source application".

Hello Wine, goodbye Cedega, is about the only comment that comes to mind.

Wine already itself has support for Direct 3D and you can also run HL2 on it (but not as fine as with Cedega).
