This has puzzled me for some time.  Why would you use DirectX?  Does
anyone know of any benefits beyond better support for Direct3D over
OpenGL?  Does Diablo use any DirectX tricks that wouldn't be possible
under SDL?  Or are the commercial developers just comfortable with
DirectX and aren't looking beyond it?
