IIRC, the FIC guys have already experimented with SDL. I seem to recall
an IRC conversation where someone mentioned having to come up with a way
to switch back from full-screen SDL, since the usually recommended
alt-enter is, well, not available in default packaging :]

It might've been also just someone's idle speculation, but if my memory
servers, it was somebody who actually had done work on that or at least
was familiar with work done on that :]

Indeed on all counts.
