We should be prepared for release of SDL2, which is widely used in commercial software (mostly, in games). I suggest to add live or snapshot ebuild to main tree.
And don't forget that all ebuilds that depends on libsdl, should have sloted libsdl:0 for legacy 1.2 (see bug #450710).

libsdl-2.0.0_pre6963.ebuild from gamerlay as good point to start.
I don't think it's appropriate before it gets released.

Well, it can be added hardmasked for testing
We'll pick it up when it's released.
