The reference decoder is very slow, with my athon xp 1800+, some frame
take near one second to decode...
So I believe people still want native decoder...
I don't know how you plan to implement native decoder (RE with English
spec ?), but may be some distributed RE via a wiki (I don't remember the
link, but some people already do that for RE the wifi broadcom mips
binary driver) could be interesting.
