I agree.  Even if directx and x11 are the only two at the moment, we
can't rely on that forever.  People will want to implement new things in
MPlayer later, and we should have a design that introduces as few
roadblocks as possible.  That's why we're talking about G2, right?
Because G1 isn't flexible enough in some places.


All philosophy is naive.
