So, I wonder if VDPAU will be able to cope (and use) a couple of video
cards... Maybe dedicate one video card just to transcode/commflag/etc, and
leave the other free for output (and use it for other tasks when there is no
video output needed). So rather than throw $200 of CPU at the problem, we
throw $40 worth of GPU at it (and a 2nd slot obviously).
