No, there isn't any reason to have a separare VDPAU decoder in that case,
so I'd actually be in favour of removing it with a major bump.

Not yet, but I think VDPAU can be switched to use AVHWAccel properly and then
all this code goes away.
The first step was rather to make the codec easier to use (and as I noticed it will
make VDPAU and VAAPI more consistent from a user's view).
