I think a problem that the H.264 decoder has is its sheer size.  I tried
twice to refactor parts of it, but failed.  Neither splitting off svq3.c
nor splitting off the parser-specific code was successful.

I suspect you could get more help if you managed to get that beast
refactored into more manageable pieces.  I faintly remember Jason saying
something to that effect...
