[SDL] SDL 1.3 status ?

For what it's worth, I'm in favor of removing the compatibility
support, keeping software rendering, and adding a stand-alone (so it's
useful for general image manipulation) roto-zoomer function.

If it isn't especially complex, you might try using TinyGL instead of
just whatever OpenGL implementation the users have, it's purely
software, supposed to be fast, and it looks like there was at least an
attempt to port it to SDL. If it'll work for your case, then it'll
(hopefully) be easier to support than the alternatives.
