Well, that answers a lot, thanks. Textures are great, but not the end, but X11 would have to go, since that would only work on Linux and Mac? How hard do you think it would be to replace X11? If it is very hard, it would be best to just interface to SDL2, and have sound, graphics, i/o, and networking out of the box. Still trying to figure if it is easy to get SDL2 working with miniPicoLisp...sans networking.
