Comment (by rogerdpack):

 @elioxia I'm kind of debating which way to go for this at the moment...if
 we have a dedicated thread for an SDL device then it prohibits us from
 (for instance) calling SDL_Init in another thread if we want 2 devices
 present at the same time, doesn't it?  I guess we could live with "at most
 1" device (and don't use SDL for anything else in your app!) or is there
 another way?  I suppose we could start with 1, and then later add smarts
 so that it has one "gui thread" that processes output for multiple windows
 or something like that...i.e. add support for more than one later whenever
 anybody actually needs it? Thoughts?
