I think this is interesting, and I'd like to try to contribute if you need help.

May I ask why isn't SDL good enough? Is it only that the new library is going to
be more Erlang-oriented, or are there any other reasons?

Yes, it would, and from what I gathered it isn't difficult to do with SDL_ttf. I
had some problems getting anything to work on Windows, but on Linux it seems
straightforward. I'll tinker with it some more and let you know.
