This is actually very kewl. ;-)

I've often thought that there should be a documented collection of some of 
the great SDL demos out there for newbies and newbie sympathizers. Things 
like this, that awesome parallax scrolling series by David Olofson, Randi J. 
Relander, Nghia, et al. I know there is a demo page on libsdl.org, but what I 
am actually thinking of would be more like a HOWTO.
