I might have tried that in the past, but the other one (IIRC) that I was
surprised at was the inability to predeclare a matrix for use in transforms.

There are a lot of things in SDL that have similar structures, but are
separate/isolated from each other.  matrices, splines, prisms --- it would be
nice if their internal data were all addressable/accessible like arrays.
