I am interested, conditionally.

I've already got to track CVS anyway for bugfixes since I develop with SDL
every day.  I don't currently use ALSA but am planning to set that up
"soon" anyway to get wavetable support for my card, so I'll be able to
test with that.  I can't promise I'll be testing things like GGI support
often though since upstream seems to have stagnated (though I wouldn't
want to remove that support from the packages at the moment because the
GGI webpage swears that they're actually still working on it, really, they
are!  Go visit their irc channel if you don't believe them!)

If you're any more likely to use the stuff I'm not than I am, you should
definitely take the package.  Otherwise I already do maintain local SDL
packages anyway since I need to run the latest release, often more than a
couple patches from current CVS.

I never thought that I'd see the say where Netscape is free software and
X11 is proprietary.  We live in interesting times.
