Guile-SDL Demos 4.3 available

release notes:

  By popular (snort) demand, Guile-SDL Demos can now break out of the
  build tree, to sully more magnetic media on your computer.  DWR!


README excerpt:

  This is a collection of small programs released
  under GNU GPL v3 that use Guile-SDL, available at:

  NB: These require Guile-SDL 0.4.1 or later.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 4.3 | 2013-06-07

    - support for "make install"

        This copies the demos to $(pkgdatadir) and the driver script,
        slightly modified, to $(bindir)/demo-guile-sdl (name chosen to
        be less generic to avoid possible conflicts).  In short:

         Guile-SDL Demos     -- package name
         demo                -- uninstalled driver
         demo-guile-sdl      -- installed driver

        Confused?  See next item!

    - support for "make uninstall"

        This deletes those files created by "make install" and
        furthermore deletes $(pkgdatadir).  You didn't really want to
        waste 2 MB of disk space on this weirdness, anyway, right?

    - new command: ‘demo --credits’

        This displays the AUTHORS file.  So, if you want to see your
        name in lights, why not contribute a demo or two (hint hint).
        Or will you instead allow ttn's narcissism to grow unchecked?!

    - ‘demo --version’ outputs more

        In addition to program name, package name and package version,
        the output includes the copyright line, license blurb and
        disclaimer.  When can we commence killing lawyers, please?

    - ‘deal’ abstracts mouse buttons

        We have it on good authority that a future Guile-SDL release
        will have fully-symbolic mouse buttons (i.e., ‘left’ and ‘right’
        instead of 1 and 3).  The new procs ‘mb-L?’ and ‘mb-R?’ show how
        to gracefully bridge this API discontinuity.  [Insert invective
        against the poor foresight necessitating such kludges, here.]
