Which means you'll over the years spend a few days arguing why you chose
SVGALIB and not something else. You also immediately shut out a great deal
of potential users by using SVGALIB. Personally I never touch software
written using it, but I do test stuff done with SDL/Plib or similar

But, of course the choice is yours.
