Since everyone seems to agree on this I think we need to find a way to 
move forward.

I've spent a lot of time playing with the code implementing a version of 
push/video context in 4.0. The result is a WIP branch:

I got software/hardware playback working, snapshots, transcoding, video 
filtering/converting all using the video context.

The branch is very dirty with many back and forth solution testing, some 
TODO added and fixed. There's also plenty of Linux I didn't try, VDPAU 
being the most tricky to change to use the video context. At least a 
quick comparison with master gives you an idea of what will be affected 
by the video context. I tried to as minimal changes to master (hence 
still using a decoder pool for decoders and a display pool for displays).

Since I seem to disagree on the technical solutions we should use, I'll 
let Remi and Thomas who know all this stuff way better than me do it in 
a cleaner way. I will continue helping on the issues I found, reviewing 
patches and doing the D3D/win32 parts.
