You shouldn't have any 'stupid QT lib problems' on Debian -- if you're using
current unstable, you're using something that's identical to my dev
I consider XvMC unstable (tends to make the X driver unuseable for normal Xv
playback for me) and unuseable (16 color grayscale OSD), but that's just me.
Besides, I don't think XvMC belongs in a binary package, due to the way it
links to a specific vendor's XvMC library -- if the packages were compiled
linked to the nvidia xvmc lib, and someone wanted to use the i810 or whatever
XvMC driver, they'd have to recompile.
