I agree that this is really a very interesting development that should
be released.  However, we do releases mainly for (re)distributors in
order to build their applications against that. Do you expect other
downstreams to implement (and release!) useful stuff[tm] with
libavfilter in a timeframe of about about 12 months?

If not, then I'd suggest to defer that for 0.7, which is expected to be
released next year. Interested users and developers will fetch
libavfilter from svn anyway.

This is being said as someone who has never actually used libavfilter,
so my impression of it may be totally wrong. Please say if you disagree
