We at the GAMES Project (meaning me) are trying to "untie" the Sprite32
library from X by including lots of general-purpose features. A GGI
version is already being planned and will be available Real Soon Now :)
Using conditional compilation I plan to create a library that can
compile to run equally well on top of X, GGI, or even (ugh) Win32. I
just wanted to get the gotchas out of the X version first.

p.s. Tiny is cool :)
