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 
applications.

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