Is someone going to volunteer to do that though?

By the way, this discussion is exactly the reason I was "whining" on
#ffmpeg-devel earlier.  People can complain about me "not doing
anything," but when I actually go to submit the patches, this is
*exactly* what happens.

Next time someone gets angry at me for complaining about how hard it
is to get the simplest things committed here, I can just point them to
this thread and show them how much arguing it took to get two optional
functions added to dsputil--or perhaps how, despite so much arguing,
it ended up not being added...

I don't see how it's worth my effort to write even these trivial
patches if they do nothing but generate massive bikeshed wars over
whether it's a bad idea to allow *optional GPL code* despite the fact
that, clearly, nobody is willing write the LGPL equivalent--if they
were, it would have already happened sometime in the past 2 years.
