Why such a choice? I hope you'll reconsider this.

Proprietary license will sorely reduce your target audience, such
people would not use closed source software that they can not hack
(including me).

It's also harder to port the stuff to other platforms.

You will not have any contributions and as you may already know, SDL
has a lots of contributions. Think about everything that you don't
have or don't want. Is it not nice to get people making ports of your
software for several platforms for you? Like, xbox, android, nintendo
ds, atari, whatever.

If you really care about credits, why not using GPL and a commercial
license? Free software developers will be happy to have access to
source code and you can earn money for commercial apps.
