Video vs. system memory, and archive

Is there a way to control whether an SDL_Image is in video
memory or system memory, on a per-image basis? I know of
the SDL_HWSURFACE flag to the SetVideoMode(), but I’m looking
for finer grained control.

Also, is there a search engine for the mailing-list archive?
If not, that would be very very useful!
