The SDL key symbols are defined in SDL_keysym.h and I would suspect them
to be the same on every platform, though not necessarily in every
version. But the safe way, of course, is to always use the symbolic names.

function indentation style.

I'll see into it that I always balance chained blocks in the future
(didn't care about it till now).
