I thought we were only implementing this in the Mac version of SDL? So does
it really matter if we use control?

AFAIK DrawSprocket doesn't do event handling, such as detecting mouse
buttons. You are thinking of InputSprocket.

You should reconsider. There is no better way to switch screen resolutions
on the current MacOS. That's all DrawSprocket is really intended for anyway.

There is ISp support for the joystick code. There is no ISp support for
keyboard and mouse in the joystick code. The keyboard and mouse events are
handled by the video subsystem.
