Yeah, that's what I did.

So I've heard. :(

That's the direction I'm heading in, and will be heading in more
rapidly when I get more things to play with again. ;-)
I'd probably be using xen right now if it had drm support; this is.
Even in linux, support for that was only added IIRC about a year ago.
But there are far more pressing concerns to address with regard to our
drm code, to say the least.  I'm just waiting on the hardware, then I
can get to try to make it work without really knowing what I'm doing
as I used to do a few years ago, which will be fun ... ;-)
