/**
 *  \file SDL_hints.h
 *  
 *  Official documentation for SDL configuration variables
 *
 *  This file contains functions to set and get configuration hints,
 *  as well as listing each of them alphabetically.
 *
 *  The convention for naming hints is SDL_HINT_X, where "SDL_X" is
 *  the environment variable that can be used to override the default.
 *
 *  In general these hints are just that - they may or may not be
 *  supported or applicable on any given platform, but they provide
 *  a way for an application or user to give the library a hint as
 *  to how they would like the library to work.

 *  \brief  A variable controlling how 3D acceleration is used to accelerate the SDL 1.2 screen surface. 
 *
 *  SDL can try to accelerate the SDL 1.2 screen surface by using streaming
 *  textures with a 3D rendering engine.  This variable controls whether and
 *  how this is done.
 *
 *  This variable can be set to the following values:
 *    "0"       - Disable 3D acceleration
 *    "1"       - Enable 3D acceleration, using the default renderer.
 *    "X"       - Enable 3D acceleration, using X where X is one of the valid rendering drivers.  (e.g. "direct3d", "opengl", etc.)
 *
 *  By default SDL tries to make a best guess for each platform whether
 *  to use acceleration or not.

 *
 *  The default varies by platform, but it's the first one in the list that
