This is all nice but irrelevant. The point is that the cvidix vo
driver has no access to the contents of the display, only the overlay
buffers. So it can't paint a color key on. Use of color key only makes
sense when the vo driver can write to both the overlay and the main
video memory to draw a rectangle with the color key.
