Re: About SDL2-gpu

Thanks for the research, Paul.

I didn't have any game or engine in mind when I packaged it, I am
playing with it myself. I also did some initial Cython bindings [1],

develop something useful, I will put it in then, For the moment,
you're probably right. Most likely no one would really use it except
