Games are not like databases. Getting one set of libraries to run every game is
not practical: rogue, doom, xpilot, mario. Completely different
requirements:completely different libraries needed.

It would be nice to have some standardisation, but it aint gonna happen - look
at the Windows market... on top of Direct3D, everyone builds their own stuff.
It's just better hidden.
