I can't remember what was said then.

I looked at the patch then, and at the vaapi->vdpau plugin used in vlc,
and I would have preferred to create a libvdpau_vaapi.so that aadapted
vaapi to vdpau so we could use current vdpau vo. The most important
thing missing in vaapi is presentation queue handling, but that you can
implement with opengl (which I think is already used with vaaapi) and
some code.

If I remember correctly the patch changed things related to the calling
of vo vdpau, so that may break some things.
