i see no reason for ggi. it was never tested by us and afaik nearly no one
uses ggi for mplayer.
sdl was good for many things in the past, but imho we've fixed those
problems so it's also not important. anyway dependency on sdl is ok.
esp. if debian have different versions of sdl (not including all the shit)

maybe split docs per language.

> AFAIK mplayer is (willingly) not using .so libraries because they are
it's only 1 of the reasons. others include :
- many of these libs are not binary compatible (they are under heavy
development and so api changes)
- we've patched most of them to work (better) with mplayer, so they differ
(even in API) from 'official' .so versions
