[Scummvm-devel] platform/engine notes

I agree that it's a good idea to have some documentation of such 
platform/engine code. This could reveal some general hints to developers 
of the specific branches. Hopefully there's not much more than the input 
issues though.

I think this is the basic idea for this specific issue. At least that's 
what I had in mind when commenting on the pull request yesterday.

We do have the platform limitations page:


It might be a good place to inform engine developers about limitations 
when it comes to input handling over there too.

I agree that the wiki is probably the best place to put notes about 
other platform specific hacks/code in engines (or the other way round). 
I'm not creative about possible page names, but here's one: "Platform 
specific Code in Engines". If someone has a better idea, feel free to 
tell it to us.
