You can already play bluray rips with ffmpeg. I am not sure
really what ffmpeg has to do on the hardware side of things.
Something like this would likely be isolated in a separate
library (like decss) so that it can be added incrementally to
systems located in countries where a Linux AnyDVD workalike
might be illegal.
You can already play BD video in Linux, you just can't rip it.
The BD hardware acceleration on the newer Nvidia cards also
works quite well too. There might even be some question as to
what operating system would exploit the new minimacs better in
