Interesting option. I guess since that person is most likely going to
be Michael too, it will depend on what he thinks of such a sponsored
"yadif next generation" approach. For a transition period both filters
could coexist much like the mplayer filters being removed once an
equivalent or better version is there. I would definitely help testing
a new deinterlacing filter.
