I already sent a mail some times ago about this subject... People motivated
to do a task like this should write an 'interface' document describing the
proposed API for this driver layer (ie how QEMU would interface with this

Then, have it approved by Fabrice and port the SDL driver to this API.
People should be then free to add their own 'native' APIs with SDL being
always the 'default to run on new system' version.

Basically, this is how it works in ScummVM and it seems to work fine for
them (with, for example, native PocketPC and DreamCast ports).
