you misunderstand( or else i do, and im then screwed )
AFAIK, the surfaces you load are left near enough to the state they were as
a file on disk.
it is only when the blitting to the display surface occurs is conversion
done and , again as far as i have gathered, the conversion is temporary and
does not afffect the blitted surface.
this is needless to say, performance intensive.
my_fast_new_surface = SDL_DisplayFormat( my_crappy_old_surface );
copys the surface, so the original is again, untouched.
maybe i misread you, but i hope this helps
