glMapBuffer should not be use, it's really not a good way to do stuff.
Anyway the extra copy might be unavoidable given that sometime the
front/back might either be in unmappable vram or either have memory
layout that is not the one specify at buffer creation (this is very
common when using tiling for instance). So even considering MapBuffer
or a like function i believe it's a lot better to not allow buffer
mapping in userspace but provide upload/download hooks that can use
userpage to avoid as much as possible extra copy.

Cheers,
Jerome
