Planning to support Derelict too so it can be used along with 
those bindings and SDL too.

The reason why I went with dsfml initially was just that it was 
easier to start out with rather than fiddling with Derelict. 
However Derelict supports SFML 2.4 which dsfml doesn't (It's SFML 
2.1) so that might be why you went with it and also why I want to 
support that as well.

The engine itself doesn't depend on dsfml, there is a module that 
interfaces to it but for any other bindings you just create the 
same interfaces and encapsulates it in its own version scope.

The reason for it is to make sure the engine can be used with 
existing projects or be implemented into existing games etc.
