I've had a response from Christophe. Since it's a h/w decoder, the
method of implementing this does not really fit cleanly into the
existing (good) architecture. Deinterlacing and other video filters will
not be possible for h/w decoded streams, since the picture data is not
available to be modified. Christophe does not have time to port up to
svn. The bottom-line is that this is still proof-of-concept work and
unlikely to get into the tree in a useful state without substantial work
from a vlc developer. And since none of the developers use the h/w,
don't expect that to happen as a matter of course.
Christophe is going to send me the code for review anyway. I will not be
able to justify spending much time on it, given that deinterlacing and
marquee filtering won't be possible.
