I am convinced this would be a good thing.  After using SDL for a bit, I
realized that majority of it is redundant if you're using OpenGL.  What's
really needed is something similar to GLUT, but that doesn't force all of
your code into callback functions.  SDL itself is a poor match for Erlang in
a number of ways.
