Ok, so I've tested a little more with xserver 1.5 and 2.4 Intel
driver, and somewhere along the line textured video has become
seemingly fluent with at least GMA X3000 and GMA X3100 chipsets I
have. Meaning that 1920x1080 Big Buck Bunny Ogg video plays without
problems with compiz turned on, in both window and full screen.

Thanks a lot, whenever this actually happened. Together with the EXA
fixes to have performance accceptable without forcing greedy, there
seems to be no need for any workarounds anymore at least with the more
modern Intel graphics.
