	Anything is possible (the GPU
vendors talk about MPEG4 assist too),
but I think that is very unlikely.
 From my understanding of it,
Apple only uses HW assist for DVDs.

	John has reverse-engineered this,
and it is possible he knows what parts
of the API do aspects like ICT
(useful for some other codecs),
but that is a lot more work.
