although i have not tested it, i believe putpixel functions
already exist inside of the SDL-demos/screenlib package in the file
pixel.h and pixel.cc

SDL is fine just as it is, in fact there are a huge number of
unaware of and would never use. Why not take them out :^)?
I see Put/GetPixel as pretty fundamental routines. Most people writing
will end up writing their own. It might just save time to provide one.
I can’t agree. If you want fast graphics you most probably won’t use
put/get pixel but some kind of sprites bliting - simply because calling
this kind of function for every single pixel is damn slow. And I agree
with Neil that I prefer using my own blit which I can trust and about
which I know everything…
This is what I like about SDL - it provides simple interface to
framebuffer. Just personal opinion, of course…
