IIRC (please correct me if iam wrong, i didnt search the mailinglists) i said
that ill LGPL the optimized code which is equivalent to whatever optimized
code was in ffmpeg, now ffmpeg does contain some optimized planar scaler but
it seems to be disabled so iam not sure what i should do?
the intent behind the LGPLing of sws code was just to prevent any feature
loss or speed loss, of the LGPL version of ffmpeg

and the second thing i said was that if arpi returns to mplayer development
and then still needs and wants swscaler under LGPL then ill LGPL the whole
all just IIRC of course, i could have mixed up some detail ...

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
