Ya'know... I personally would object to this one just because of the
questions it would generate on the mailing list. How many times are we
going to see questions about using sub-sufaces in OpenGL and so on. Not
to mention how easy it is to do with clipping rectangles and the create
surface from hack... 

Ok, I know I am being a curmudgeon, but some features create more
problems than they are worth.
