If the two of you could agree on an alternate, suitable approach, I could offer
to do the codemonkey's work like compn suggested. However, I still lack some
knowledge about API and HWACCEL which would result in certain inefficiency in
doing so. OTOH this comes along with a nonbiased perspective which might be a
positive thing here.

I'd appreciate it if anyone else would be willing to commit some coding to a
solution, though. I am not eager to do it but I can if we stall completely
