FWIW^2, I am using the 4191 drivers.  It seems that XV support was improved
(I used to see ~35-40% X usage and now I see less than 10%).  2D support
is noticeably slower than it was under 3193 (but not unacceptable for Myth).
I did have to (manually) turn on the Render Accelleration and AGP support
for 4191 (no GART here), so that might be why I was seeing so much processor
