Although the patch is carefully designed not to change any existing 
behavior, I fully understand that such a major patch cant be accepted in 
a late development cycle.

I will continue to port (and publish) this patch to future releases 
anyway, since its highly useful for my VDR plugin at the far end of the 
stream. And for a final integration: Its never too early to start 
talking about it. ;)

It would require at least the modified filter to do the cropping, and 
thats already one of the biggest impacts. In pre-0.8, this was directly 
handled by ffmpeg, but since 0.8 this is redirected to the filters, 
which simply cannot crop at all.

Sounds nice. Since the redesign includes a successor of filter2 anyway, 
its probably a good idea to add crop/padd functionality directly into 
it. Maybe my filter implementation can even be of use as transitional 
early implementation of the next generation filter...
