This awaits a person willing to port this stuff. I don't want to do this
myself due to possible Macrovision protection issues.

However many people tried to persuade me that these problems do not exist 
so, perhaps, someone else will do it.

Of course, it would be great if Federico Ulivi did it himself (he wrote 
tv_output branch), but he appears to be busy lately.

Also, it is likely a good idea to discuss any Macrovision-related concerns 
here on xorg mailing list before putting code in CVS.
