We're starting with motion compensation for now, which should get us to
1080p playback on most hardware. H.264 support looks incompatible with
the current XvMC design though, so we're also looking at what it will

the rest of the pipeline shouldn't require any additional documentation
though, so I'm hoping to share the delights of implementation with
