Heheh, actually, for hardware surfaces, yes, it's much more lightweight.
For software surfaces, well, it has to check flags like SDL_MULACCEL,
but it's not too bad:

	if ( flag ) { do some cool stuff };
	if ( hardware ) { do that hardware lock };
	if ( otherflag ) { do some more cool stuff };

Sometime early next week, probably.
