I'm hoping to fix up some code to allow hardware accelerated
commflagging in the next few weeks. It'll be VDA (apple, H264) and
Crystal HD only at first as these deliver decoded frames into main
VDPAU will need extra work around getting decoded frames back out of
the GPU for analysis (which may be slow enough to make it
unattractive) and they'll all need some way of sensibly sharing a
scarce hardware resource between commflagging and video playback.
