Implementation-wise, swresample has nothing of the required primitives
already, and as Paul pointed out it relies on the FFT from avcodec,
linking swresample to avcodec is a big no-no (a breaking change, and a
circular dependency since avcodec links to swresample already), while
avfilter does already link to avcodec for a variety of things.

Until such a day when everything becomes merged, if it ever happens,
there is several technical aspects that make it very impractical to
put this into swresample.
