Extreme video

I have learnt today about nVidia's Tesla GPGPU. This is a headless GPU but still a highend GPU.
In my humble opinion a very powerful video streaming server could be built with this GPGPU. It would offer fast transrating/transcoding because of it's optimized SIMD architecture for streaming media. The basic idea is to access all its 240 cores via the CUDA API and recompile some codecs (FFMPEG on CUDA?)for the new platform.
