These need to be in 'inputs', not native-inputs -- their shared
libraries will actually be executed when python-pysdl2 executed, which
can only work if they are compiled for the same architecture as python-
pysdl2 is compiled for (that's what 'inputs' means; for 'native-
inputs', it would be compiled for the architecture on which python-
pysdl2 is compiled, not the architecture it is compiled for).

ctypes sounds like an implementation detail not relevant to users of
python-pysdl2, maybe: ‘Python bindings around SDL2’?

Nitpick: the convention is two ;;, not a single ;.

Thee strings above can be combined.

Indentations seems a bit wonky -- if this is to not make the line too long,
maybe try putting a line break between the 'string-append' and the "DLL(..."?

These strings too.

Recommended style (considered more readable):

  (list #:tests? #f ; etcetera
        #~(modify-phases [etcetera]))

(Many other packages don't do it like that yet, it has only
be discovered recently -- I would point you at IRC logs but
I'm currently offline.)

Also, don't put the package definition simply at the end, that
leads to merge conflicts.  Instead, try keep packages
alphabetical ... which is difficult here, because it has
historically neglected alphebetical ordening, but maybe right
after python-py would be a good fit?

Otherwise, the package definition LGTM from a distance, though
I only looked at the definition, I didn't check the source code
(for simplifying the substitute*-ions or checking for malware)
or build it.
