I can't use a hacked version of SDL for the Debian package. I'm also
not a Windows user or a Russian user. Therefore, I'm not really
suitable as a tester. However, I would still like to get this bug off
the books and see the user's problem resolved. I'm kind of in a bind,
though, as to how to proceed. Do I try to get the user involved in
hand-rolling their own package with a hacked SDL? That's a little
unfriendly. Or do I join the SDL development effort? (I am pretty sure
I don't have the time or expertise for that.) Or is my only option to
just tell the user "well, wait and see -- there's an SDL patch pending
for this, but until it is accepted and enters Debian, all we can do is
wait." That doesn't feel right either.
