It seems I should not have trusted Ubuntu universe packages to
be up to date.

Anyway you could simply send me your modified .slate files.
I'll merge it with my code myself.

I did not like this sentence much. I feels like you say I am too dumb
to use the more recent version of SDL_gfx. Which in a sense was true.
I expect to change that, before the weekend. Not being dumb,
just using the latest version. :-)

Oh maybe you were saying that I may be unable to change an H in h,
and a B in b.
Well, I could change the capitalization of letters.
But frankly for now, I care much about adding code to be able to poll 

P.S. I do have a patch for src/lib/external.slate that make it possible to
load SDL code. As was discussed in IRC logs. Now trying to see what's going
on with derivable.slate stuff before.
