I've had a response from Christophe. Since it's a h/w decoder, the 
method of implementing this does not really fit cleanly into the 
existing (good) architecture. Deinterlacing and other video filters will 
not be possible for h/w decoded streams, since the picture data is not 
available to be modified. Christophe does not have time to port up to 
svn. The bottom-line is that this is still proof-of-concept work and 
unlikely to get into the tree in a useful state without substantial work 
from a vlc developer. And since none of the developers use the h/w, 
don't expect that to happen as a matter of course.

Christophe is going to send me the code for review anyway. I will not be 
able to justify spending much time on it, given that deinterlacing and 
marquee filtering won't be possible.
