So we have:
C++, 2xBR v3.3b, LGPL

C++, 2xBR v3.3b, GPL

The former is clearly a copy&paste from the latter, so that should be
used as reference. 

paintown code was relicensed to GPL with Hyllian's consent, so we
should be able to do the same (if licensing is a concerns, which
probably isn't for such a fringe filter).

Algorithm description can be found here:

(note: it was down the last time I checked).

NOTE: since both are games/emulators, I suppose it won't be easy to
make them generate a reference output, so we should rely on comparing
the output generated by the filter with some output found on the web.

@arwa: are you willing to readapt your xbr filter to make use of
Hyllian's code?
