I may be saying something stupid. Please forgive me if that is the case.

Since there is a svgalib-dummy which can be used as a replacement for
svgalib-realthing we can twist things around and compile all programs
with svgalib-dummy-dev. Then, if/when svgalib-realthing is released, those
people who need it can just install it and replace the svgalib-dummy lib.

In other words, let's make svgalib-dummy the standard lib and
svgalib-realthing the special-interest replacement.
