To answer your question, feel free to post a link to a patch.  It won't
be included in the official SDL releases, but I'm guessing lots of people
will appreciate it.

Also, if you have time, I'd be curious on your feedback on the SDL 1.3
snapshot I mentioned earlier, as well as checking out it's 1.2 compatibility
for your application.
