Is the below rough summary correct ?

What it currently is :
* a patch set to DRM kernel modules, xine-lib and xineliboutput
* that adds proper interlaced output from ATI and Intel GPUs
* it also adds FrameRateControl under some conditions
* it's stable and works on VGA, but seems to also work on HDMI
* only works with Xv (does/can not make use of XvMC)
* can work with any display device (CRT, LCD, plasma)
* make most use of the display device capability (interlaced display on 
a SD CRT, "picture enhancers" on HD LCD/Plasma)

Ideal goal would probably imply :
* output mode change upon source mode change (output 720x576i on the VGA 
when playing SDTV, output 1920x1080i/p when playing HDTV contents, etc.)
* make use of hardware decoding capabilities when available (specially 
for HDTV)

Side-needs :
* add support for nVidia, VIA chips, etc. (feasability ?)
* integrate these patches upstream (feasability, propagation delays?)
