Oh, my terminal.d makes that simple anyway!

I want to close some of the gap between terminal and 
simpledisplay though. I wrote a little file text viewer for 
someone on irc today with simpledisplay and it was a bit of a 
hassle. On the other hand, a high-level widget is outside sdpy's 
charter, but being able to write text is really useful... and 
surprisingly complicated with low-level apis, so I think I'll do 

But regardless, for a 2d game, sdpy and terminal both give what 
you need to make it pretty simple.
