yes, svgalib requires root, and is no longer maintained, and quite often 
leaves machines in graphics mode if they crash.

Am I hallucinating or did somebody mention that they had bindings for SDL 
translated?  SDL does not need root, and works well as far as I can tell 
and will work in a window for X.  AND it's cross-platform.
