You are right that we have a variety of possible solution each one with
its own pros and cons.
I think removing SDL(+Opengl) for Gtk and Cairo is not a good idea *but*
we could add another Gtk based fronted.
We are already forced to work with multiple frontend because of vnc, so
at this point adding another one won't cause any harm.
