We really need to make our chroma conversion plugins a bit more generic.
Currently they can only be used by video output objects.
This shouldn't require too much work... I guess a few hours at most.

The advantage would be that you'll only have to fill in a vlc picture_t 
structure with the RGBA buffer and then just convert it to whatever chroma 
the output is using with the help of these chroma conversion modules.
