@craigmaloney For Rust, the main actual problem is that linking to and distributing a C library is an extra step in a project that is minorly painful compared to having everything Just Work in pure Rust.
I've also met people who just think SDL2 is crap. It might or might not be; for my purposes I don't much care.
@icefox Yeah, I've done enough Pygame programming where having a native Python library would be nice-to-have. But there are a lot of miles on SDL's tires so I can appreciate not having to re-learn those lessons.
