It seems that the mjpeg stuff will be in the wrong place when it starts
being used by non-DVB modules. I see the two (DVB and mjpeg) as
distinct entities - like ethernet drivers and ipv4. (DVB drivers should
let you change channels and whatnot, mjpeg drivers should allow you to
decode data streams from any available source.)
