Sorry, I don't understand that: how you can fail to see the added  
value for something like libavfilter --- hopefully meant to be used in  
as many applications as libavcodec --- of a modular filter-combination  
language (think of C without functions, if you dare), but what do I  

Perhaps I've got the wrong picture in mind here, when I think of  
libavfilter I don't think of the elementary crop,scale,aspect  
sequence, but rather of large avisynth-like scripts, of collections of  
user-contributed application-specific filters, etc: I think the same  
way several users today share ffmpeg parameters to encode for, say,  
ipod or psp without really understanding the details, they will  
tomorrow share potentially complex libavfilter's filtergraphs.
