[SDL] Alpha revisit

The more I work with SDL the more I realize how limited the way SDL handles
alpha is.  It would've been nice if I can explicitly specify alpha off, surf
alpha, or channel alpha.  Couple with limited or differently behaving
hardware, this can get very frustrated and sometimes helpless at achieving a
certain effects.  

Bottom line, was there some sort of technical reason, like too difficult to
implement, for this?
