That's irrelevant.  There is manifestly a problem with video.  It was
reported in August of last year.  You can't credibly continue to claim
8 months later that everything is hunky dory.  It was not then and is
not now.

Rather than complaining about the "lame" userspace, work with them to
apply the requisite patches.  Debian is about building a *system* in
support of our users.  Some of us want to use video out of the box.
It's not that much to ask, is it?
