Sorry, I fail to see why.
The fact that OpenGL stores pictures upside-down is an internal detail,
and everything (including placements) should be vflipped internally by
the OpenGL vout.
In particular, if the OpenGL module calls vout_display_PlacePicture(),
it should vflip the placement too (the vout_display_place_t rectangle),
so in the end it will be correct.
Even if the OpenGL vout stored the image rotated by 90 degrees (or any
other inversible transformation), as long as the placement is correctly
converted, it would also work.
