The support GridFlow has for SDL is very incomplete. AFAIK it's supposed
to use SDL_main() and it is expected by SDL that it is being used by a
standalone application, but GridFlow is a library, so SDL support is
shitty, and the window doesn't respond to any events at all.

PostScriptum: I have made gridflow/format/sdl.c add itself to gridflow's
event loop and now it's calling SDL_Poll() so that the window can at least
respond to "redraw" events. I don't know whether that will have an impact
on a MacOSX and/or Win32 port.
