you say extarnal is bad ...
now we have 2 seperate repositories for ffmpeg and mplayer, and its clear
nothing can be in both without being external in one unless you want to
duplicate it
maybe it would have been better if mplayer and ffmpeg would have been in the 
same repository, i dunno, but what i do know is that this is a seperate problem
not something which i will allow to hold up the work on sws ...
we can finish the changes to sws and you can at the same time disscuss with 
interrested parties how to redesign the repository structure to avoid 
externals, nothing is lost by following this path, when you have a solution
we can always change to that, theres no need to delay the sws patches ...

your solution violates cvs policy, so unless you propose to change that and
of course people agree to the change its not worth further disscussion
cvs policy says (or at least did before the svn move) that moving files
with cvs remove / cvs add is unaceptable, and people have lost their cvs
accounts in the mplayer project for violating this IIRC ...

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
