No, it won't. If you have a 640x480 Pygame (read: SDL) window, it will
just be in the top-left corner. I have some code that allows embedding
SDL into Hippo, so you can at least center it, but it is still just
640x480. If you change X modes, it will could fill the screen, but then
you get back to flicker issues.
