I think there is no harm to fork SDL into github.
If hg-git (http://hg-git.github.com) is used, each "version" can benefit
from checkins to either repo relatively easily.
For example, I had created a SDL1.3 fork for the CoApp work last year
(https://github.com/ferzkopp/SDL) and ported some of the VisualStudio
related updates back into SDL "main" later.
