Subject: [PATCH] quirks: Force "tucnak" to x11, software renderer, and no
 framebuffer texture.

It uses rendering and the event loop from different threads, so it upsets
OpenGL and is hard to work around, beyond just falling back to an
all-software rendering path (which means it has to use X11 too).

There is a real SDL2 target for this app, which doesn't have these
limitations, but this gets the SDL 1.2 target working.

Fixes #182.

+## Tucnak (Linux)
+There is an SDL2 target for libzia (which tucnak uses for rendering), and you
+should use that in modern times. But if you're on the SDL 1.2 target,
+tucnak tries to render from a background thread, and does its event loop on
+another, so we can't cleanly hook in to make it draw from the main thread.
+sdl12-compat will force SDL2 to use X11, software rendering, and no texture
+framebuffer, to avoid using OpenGL, to avoid the threading problems this
+will cause. The app is perfectly usable in this configuration (and largely
+matches how they expected you to use it with SDL 1.2 anyhow).
