Erm, so it turns out that

1. the juju stack is buggy as hell, at least with my hardware. As soon as the app does any work besides just grabbing images, it'll lock the capture up. Avoid.

2. using libdc1394v2 with the old kernel stack works, but it has strange locking behaviours (as in: a new program will steal the old one's camera), and does not handle program crashes as well as v1 (you have to use a dc1394_reset_bus utility to clean up after it.)

So for now, using --without-dc1394v2 is probably a good idea. But I'm sure it'll be great in the future. Yeah!

PS as of 2.6.26, the uvc-linux v4l2 driver is in the mainline kernel. Woo! We may soon get to the stage where video input works out of the box.
