Though XV suffers from having to go through X, and
the buffer flip then happens whenever X feels like it.

on the new is also quite smooth, despite using alot
more CPU. Direct rendering helps the -vo gl case,

It did terribly until Attila gave up on making it work
on every kernel, and began focusing only on updating
it for current kernel. Though I don't know the current status.
