Frankly I think the complaints exaggerate the problem.  Prior to 1.2.x
SDL had the stable 1.0.x series and the development 1.1.x series.  Game
developers should have been targetting 1.0.x due to that.  Unfortunately
not everyone did.  To make matters worse two popular secondary libraries,
SDL_mixer and SDL_image, required the 1.1.x.

Since 1.2.0 I know of no backward incompatible change in the library.
