Sorry if it was unclear, but the video overlay thing through X/Xvideo is
different from /dev/video0.  I've never had a /dev/video0 device, even
when it was working (this is why xawtv and kdetv were the only programs
that work -- they are the only ones I've found that recognize the
overlay instead of needing a /dev/video0).

I'd like to have a /dev/video0, but as I said, I have no idea how to
get that to happen, and my searches never turn up anything but old
references to GATOS.  I haven't seen errors in the boot log either.
