JEDI SDL is a Delphi (ObjectPascal) binding to SDL created by the JEDI
project (actually, I used to work for the same company as its lead
maintainer.) JEDI has nothing directly to do with SDL. No more than SDL.Net
does (a binding for C# and other CLR/.Net languages.)

Actually its in plain old C AFAIA; but I may be wrong.. Certainly, it
presents a flat C style API interface.

No, JEDI SDL is what you are thinking of. SDL is a seperate project.

VCL components.

SDL has nothing to do with the TForm hierarchy of components. It is more
like the GDI under Windows. It's a low level graphics API. It's not a widget
