Well, from the point of view of expected external functionality, I still
think it's a bug.
Yes, I did look at it and could easily modify vf_pad.c to move the luma, but
not so easy to do the chroma. Either conversion to rgb or 444 would be
needed for that as you point out. As it turns out, for what I'm presently
doing, getting the luma moved is all  I need, so I'm ok at this point. 
It doesn't look too hard to special case odd pixel movement (doing the
needed conversions), but not sure I have the time right now.
