While I'm all for dropping the old scaler, I'd like to raise 3 issues:

1 - Roundup #504 which is really important IMHO.
2 - Regression tests broken with new scaler.
3 - GPL license

I don't think we can drop the old scaler until at least these issues
(well #3 is not really an issue) are fixed.

What we need IMHO:
- Fix #504.
- Fix regs tests (how is the soc student going ?)
- Make the libswscale compile without --enable-gpl

I think this is really important. Thanks guys.
