Well, provided that it's obvious how to design a "perfect" API of that 
kind, that might be a good idea. If not, it might be better to wait until 
there are enough potential targets and users to test the API in real 

So, IMHO, it boils down to: "Would the Win32/DX target be enough in the 
case of SDL?"
