I think I am in the committee, it got extended, and I got in, somebody 
surely can find the reference...

I'd rather drop SDL1, there are times when we bump the minimal version 
requirements of external libraries, this is not that different.

On the other hand, if others do the work of maintaining the old sdl1 
version of ffplay and the devices, I don't really mind having them around 
for a few more months, but I don't think it is necessary.

I think we should wait until Lukasz does the port of the opengl device to 
SDL2, and do the switch after that.
