note that the current driver exposes a textured xvideo even on r100:
X-Video Extension version 2.2
Adaptor #0: "Radeon Textured Video"
number of ports: 16
port base: 63
operations supported: PutImage
depth 24, visualID 0x21
(That is from a Radeon Mobility M7 LW .)

The R300+ check seems necessary.
Will everything work right for X over tcp?
