I just thought to drop the support now, but not forever.
I mean we drop Mac OS Classic, but this does not hurt anybody
in the future if he implements the necessary things for SDL 1.3 to put
it back into SDL 1.3
But at the moment it would make SDL 1.3 a lot cleaner to
drop the drivers that are not update.
