release notes:

  coverage check/report methodology now fully in place.
  now it's just a race against SDL 2.0...


README excerpt:

  This directory contains Guile-SDL, a set of modules that provide
  bindings for SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) to enable Guile
  programmers to do all the nice things you can do with SDL.

  Most of the SDL functions have been wrapped with the exception of a
  few functions that were too C-centric.  The SDL Threads and the Audio
  functions haven't been included because of the problems with Guile
  code being run from more than one thread.  However audio programming
  can be done with the module `(sdl mixer)' that requires the SDL_mixer

  Also included is SDL_gfx 2.0.13 (by Andreas Schiffler)
  and bindings for it.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 0.3.3 | 2005-04-03
    - bugfix: get-clip-rect no longer causes error
        The implementation no longer tries arrange for SDL to write
        through a NULL pointer; this used to result in the SDL parachute
        being deployed if present, or a segfault otherwise.
    - bug exposure change: procs more strict on unsigned types
        The following procs now take care to do unsigned integer
        conversion directly, instead of signed conversion followed by
        cast to unsigned.
        This is part of an ongoing effort to remove/reduce "manual"
        casting (which may mask bugs) in the codebase.
    - new (sdl sdl) proc: get-app-state
    - change to (sdl misc-utils) proc: copy-surface
        This now uses `convert-surface' to do one-step copy/conversion,
        instead of the two-step process used previously.  The SRCALPHA
        (per-surface flag) handling added in Guile-SDL 0.3.2 has been
    - procs which take lists of symbols now handle #f and empty list
        Using these args is now equivalent to specifying 0 (zero) to the
        underlying SDL function.
    - `set-alpha!' third arg now optional
        If omitted it is taken as #f.
    - new chapter in manual: "Excuses (Undone Wrapping)"
