There are certainly some things that can be improved once SDL1.2
support has been removed (e.g. drawing the GUI dialogs into a separate
texture instead of "destroying" the Atari screen with the dialog), but
I don't have any concrete plans yet.

But I think the keymap rework from Vincent will definitely benefit from
the removal. I just noticed that he opened a pull request on github
where he already removed the SDL1 code:

(sorry, the notification mail for that PR landed in my spam folder, so
I did not see it earlier)

Vincent, could you please send your patches to the mailing list instead,
since we do not do reviews of bigger changes on github? Thanks!
