Although your port of the code to SDL2 address my concern about deprecating
without a replacement, I would be pained if this code were to be removed.

I still hope that lavd can become powerful and usable enough to serve as a
base for applications, at least simple ones. (Actually, I have a simple
music player running right now that does just that.) If that were to happen,
OpenGL would be the figurehead of the video output part.

If I understand correctly, SDL is only used in this device to set up a
window and a context in a cross-platform way. I even notice that the code
can be used without SDL altogether if the applications handles the context
and window itself.

The warning could be printed only when no_window is false, with the intent
that the code not under "#if HAVE_SDL" is there to stay?
