  Just for grins, I merged the video decoding patch into trunk, and made
it a new 'hwaccel' branch. This supposedly works on Intel cards, AMD
with xvba, or Nvidia with vdpau. It doesn't work with nouveau at all,
and is likely to segfault if you don't have the right hardware. This
also currently only works with ffmpeg and OpenGL.

  This code needs to be heavily refactored to be a more generic API that
supports AGG and OpenGL, plus it needs to handle error conditions
better. I know I don't have time to work on this, but figured if I got
into a new branch, maybe somebody else could.
