Down with the SDL!
 
I just noticed this link:
http://freetype.sourceforge.net/freetype2/index.html,
which suggests a possibly better model for portable rendering. (The SDL is an insanely heavyweight library; a thin layer on top of OpenGL for display, and a thin interface to the native OS for input is more appealing, to me, anyway. (And yes, they exist.) I already did one port upgrade, to OSX; the input stuff was dead easy. Most of the work was in rendering. If there was a fully portable light-weight library, I'd say the chances of further improvements in graphics are a whole lot higher.

EDIT: picked a better link!
