None the less, the ABI is locked, AND this isn't something that SDL
controls, so no. However, it should be somewhat simple to create an
abstraction layer that does this for you. Don't go looking in SDL for
it, but certainly the community would be perfectly happy if someone
were to make a library that does this, and interfaces with SDL in the
appropriate places.
