There is a seperate 2D interface. But remember that although it is indeed
platform independent it is currently not very powerful. The main reason
is that it is currently only used for supporting the 3D renderer and drawing
text and lines. 2D sprites are also supported by the 2D interface.

But it could easily be extended of course.
