This sounds very good to me! I will still send patches for discussion,
of course. If most of the guys agree with me or nothing happens in 3-4
days, I'll commit, taking care not to brake anything. I will commit
only to my driver, of course - that's what I'm interested in, so you
can give me right for just my file (if there is such granularity) :)

Yes, VMWare has evolved far enough to have emulated video adapter with
DirectX 9.0c implementation. It's interesting - I just launched the
latest SMPlayer with direct3d and it worked without any problems under
VMWare 6.5.
