[aquaria] SDL 2 Port

Hi all,

I've been playing with libSDL 2.0 for the past couple of days, and have 
ported Aquaria to it. It's quite a rough port (particularly the CMake 
bits), but is quite playable, and is a fun way of trying out the new SDL 

I've attached a patch for those who want to try it out, or --- if you 
prefer --- there's a hg repository at http://davidgow.net/hg/public/aquaria
You have to compile with 'cmake -DAQUARIA_USE_SDL2=1 
-DAQUARIA_SDL2_PREFIX=<path-to-sdl2>' at the moment, but it does work 
(at least for me).

This is more of an experiment that anything else, so it's probably not 
ripe for inclusion in the main tree, but it should be fun to play around 
with. It's certainly shown me just how usable SDL 2.0 already is.

Have fun,

-- David
