I don't know how to make a cg6 do double-buffering anyway, except via
colourmap trickery.  (The biggest thing I dislike about it is the lack
of documentation.  There appears to be a full 3D transform engine in
there, but I have no clue how to make it do anything but orthographic
projection down the Z axis.  Now you indicate it can do
double-buffering too.  I do wish Sun's old hardware documentation
program had produced more results before it fell victim to the Oracle

Well, I don't want to be greedy.  If other people want some of them, I
see no reason to not spread them around, but I would cheerfully take as
many of the capable-of-larger-resolutions ones as you care to allocate
to me off your hands.  (I have no need for the ones that max out at
1152x900; I have more such than I'm ever likely to use already.)
