I'm wondering if there are any plans to support
multiple windows with SDL? Is there any interest
in having such a feature in SDL?
SDL currently have fairly complete support for
window-manager interaction. If it also supported
creation of multiple windows at once, it would be
possible to create complete GUI applications
with it - including dialog-boxes, pop-up
menus and applications with several windows etc.
And I don't even think it would change the
way that the SDL API works. It might be
necessary to add a flag to SDL_SetVideoMode
called something like SDL_EXTRAWINDOW, to
distinquish additional windows from the primary
window. I guess there should also be some
kind of support for closing the windows
again though... (SDL_FreeSurface?).
