No there weren't any other plans; weave de-interlacing is no de-interlacing.

Weave by definition takes pairs of fields and weaves them into a frame, so
it doesn't make sense to use it at field rate.

The VDPAU display model only supports progressive output really, since
there's no way to display individual fields.
