FWIW I tried to use it when debugging a VDPAU issue, but getting it to
pass through video textures (even without any inspection) proved
harder than (eventually) fixing the driver bug. I think it's
especially useful for situations where apitrace doesn't work, and even
where it does, it can provide visibility into intermediate stages of
rendering. I think it's a useful-enough tool to keep around.
