1, ffprobe's 'interlaced_frame' is the inverse of MPEG2's 
'progressive_frame', and
2, ffprobe's 'repeat_pict' is identical to MPEG2's 'repeat_first_field', and
3, ffprobe's quirks are also ffmpeg's quirks, so this problem applies 
also to ffmpeg.

If my assumptions are incorrect,
1, What is the correct meaning of ffmpeg's 'interlaced_frame'?
2, What is the correct meaning of ffmpeg's 'repeat_pict'?
