The second one, I've implemented in-app purchases, ads support and a few
glue functions for .apk resource management and get monitor width/height in
inches and I've to "diff" SDLActivity.java to merge them back every time I
update SDL :(

I've seen that now many properties are "protected" and not "private" and
most methods have the "@Override" keyword, so I suppose that now it's
easier to achieve this through inheritance.
