A wrapper for an OpenGL buffer object (eg Vertex Buffer Object or VBO) Refer to docs for glGenBuffers() and glBufferData().

OpenGL Buffer Objects can be shared among threads.

void createOnce()

Calls create() only if the buffer has not been created yet.

void destroy()

Automatically called upon destructor, no need for the user to call it in normal situations.

void allocate(const void* data, int byteCount)

Reserves byteCount bytes in the buffer and copy to it the provided data.

create() and bind() must be called before using this method.
