Not to be disagreeable, but my primary reason for working on SDL has 
_always_ been the Linux compatibility. Because Linux games are how I 
keep the electricity on at my house.

I don't think the software rendering code is holding anyone back. Also, 
the #1 game on Steam last week was Dungeons of Dredmor, which not only 
uses software rendering, it uses SDL's GDI target on Windows.  :)
