SDL will never be designed to function as a UI toolkit.  The multiple
window support will be designed for the general multi-head case.
However, SDL does and will integrate with other GUI toolkits, like
GTk and Qt, which provide the kind of functionality you desire.

You are welcome to hack the support you want into SDL and distribute
the modified version with your program.  If it works well, I'll look
at it when implementing multi-window support in SDL 1.3.

See ya,
