1. libva-mesa-driver should be an optdep of libva like libva-intel-driver
2. mesa-vdpau should be an optdep of libvdpau
3. both libva-mesa-driver and mesa-vdpau can be dropped from mesa's optdeps
4. libva-vdpau-driver should probably be dropped from libva's optdeps; we may even want to throw it out of our repo, together with libvdpau-va-gl
5. intel-media-driver should probably be added as an optdep of libva
6. No idea why vlc optdeps on libva-intel-driver and libva-vdpau-driver

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
