I aways assumed that it was just a combination of Glide and DOS.

I always assumed it was just a combination of Glide and DOS. If Paul meant for it to rhyme with Eidos too, then that's a 15+ year old joke he got over on me. :P

Yes it was a combination of Glide and DOS. There was no other Glide wrapper that worked with DOS games at the time

You don't like the first Tomb Raider game? Or Glidos? Or a port of the first Tomb Raider game?
