Yes, but only as step 2.  Step 1 would be to port all the current
svgalib programs to SDL (or similar).

I mentioned that SDL has a svgalib backend, in order to point out
that this porting activity will cost no functionality as long as
we still support svgalib.  Only the actual decision to drop svgalib
would do that.
