I've been thinking along the same lines, for the same reasons you 
describe in your message.  It would look much nicer, and be more 
consistent, if the OSD were sized according to the screen/window size 
rather than being tied to the video view.  Speaking for 
videoout_quartz, it would be easy to do this as an overlay.  Maybe the 
driver could ask the OSD, captions, etc. to draw into an ARGB buffer?

Terrific idea,
