Thanks for these heads up.

Let's hope that by that time the OSS radeon OpenGL support has improved. 
Currently, on r600 radeon hw, there is no alternative to using Xv. It 
yields excellent performance, and completely stutter-free and tear-free 
rendering. OSS OpenGL is not as good. As I said, let's hope this changes 
so there can be a smooth transition.
