Neat! For the additional data point, here are my results:
I ran it on my combo machine, which consists of:
2 gig RAM
mythbackend version: branches/release-0-22-fixes 
Mythbuntu 9.10 64-bit install (if it's not broke yet...)
(Was built before VDPAU existed)
and the only real thing I noticed was that the load average went up to
0.25 (normally around .01 to nada when idle).
The SQL server is a separate machine all together. All told, it took
less than a minute to run.
I call this a shiny thing to use. Thanks for the info!
