One thing that I never really understood is what SDL is actually
good for?  Yes, I read in  doc/arch/sandbox.rst  that it provides
"display/keyboard support" - but what exactly can I do with a "SDL
enhanced" U-Boot compared to a non-SDL sandbox configuration?

And why is this the default?

Best regards,
