Mesa supports VBOs as extensions, in OpenGL 1.5 they are in the core. Mesa
needs the xxxARB function names, while Warzone uses the core names without ARB.
All this "hack" does is to make it possible to use the core names even if VBOs
are just extensions. I don't think there is any brokenness involved (despite
this somewhat unlucky "hack" label).
