Absolutely, most of the tools I normally work with are full
float/double internally, I was going to start with the functions that
perform the non-linear encoding, but if I'm to consider the option
they will need to work in the swscale code it opens a few questions:

Should I provide functions going too and from linear? This would allow
them to be composed to perform cross conversion.
float or double precision? - if these functions will be composed
together is there a need for double precision?
