Video/OSD Rendering is perfect.  I'll take a look at it, soon, and see 
if I can get agreement from other devs on the approach, then ensure it 
goes in.

Thanks a ton for the code--and I apologize for not replying earlier.  I 
should have mentioned that the "interim" patch you had was better not 
applied.  In general, we tend to take the "no capability is better than 
an incorrect shortcut" approach.  I didn't reply because I had planned 
to actually have written code like you submitted by now.  I figured it 
would be easier to just write the patch (since I really wanted it, too, 
for myself), and then mention that it's in.  Glad you got it done, though.

Thanks, again.
