SoC 2008/EVR video output module

As part of SoC_2008 I (Kaarlo Räihä aka VLC_help) will try to implement EVR (Enhanced Video Renderer) video output module for VLC media player. EVR will hopefully be default video output module for Windows Vista but it might also work with Windows XP if the .NET Framework 3.0 is installed. EVR should guarantee tearing free output that also works with Aero.

If I have some extra time, I will try to add some features to Direct3D output module (shaders, rotating video etc.) and possible fix other Windows (Vista) related issues/bugs.
