As far as I remember, the main GPLed parts are:
- the SIMD optimisations
- the code used to initialize the tables used for RGB <---> YUV
conversion (my experience is that it is particularly difficult
to rewrite this code without looking at the source, or without
having to modify the LGPLed code that uses the tables).
