I don't really disagree, it's just that each time I look at it and the
boring and annoying buffer management stuff you'd need my motivation
drops almost immediately to 0.
If you knew what exactly is support by a format it would be much nicer,
too. E.g. for ipmovie.c it is possible, currently supported and can make
sense to have maybe 16 separate "palette" packets per frame.
It might also be possible that none of the files ever have more than one per
packet though.
