but in this case why are we shipping libreoffice... because i think there are 
more people who watch videos then there are people who use office stuff?
i dont wanna say that its something bad but full (GP-)GPU acceleration out of 
the box would be awesome (and libreoffice can use openCL too)

maybe we should ask around in the community. for vaapi and vdpau i would say 
that the most users would use them because of firefox and chromium/chrome/
opera/ffmpeg who can use them to decode youtube and other sites via gpu

and thank you :)
