Usage of a swapchain

In order to use the swapchain, we have to start by acquiring an image. This is done with the swapchain::acquire_next_image() function.

let (image_num, acquire_future) = swapchain::acquire_next_image(swapchain.clone(), None).unwrap();

This function call returns a tuple. The first element is a usize corresponding to the index of the image within the images array of the image which is now available to us. The second element of the tuple is a future that represents the moment when the image will be acquired by the GPU.

The acquire_next_image function will block until an image is available. This can happen depending on the present mode.

To be finished - check the Triangle example for now.
