Status of Intel Xvmc support?

Looking through the archives, I have not seen any progress on Xvmc
support in the Intel driver for quite some time.

Could someone please summarize where Xvmc support is at for the
various Intel devices (g33/g35/g45 etc)?

Is there any work ongoing in this area?  In particular, is there any
hope of getting 720/1080 playback support?  I know that Intel has
expressed support for its new VA API which supports newer formats, but
there is still considerable value in MPEG2 playback via Xvmc due to
the increasing popularity of ATSC.
