I understand this verbatim, but what is it supposed to mean? Has SDL1
gotten rotten? Or more precisely:

- Has technology evolved, and the library not kept up?
- Is a long list of bugs (somehow effecting ffmpeg) piling up and never
  being fixed?
- Something else?

If so, please argument as such, that makes it easier to get the point.
Being old an unmaintained, it *might* just as well work fine.
