I will consider it the moment someone points me to a nice step-by-step
tutorial to adding stuff to swscale, or makes it similarly easy to add a
conversion to swscale as adding a codec (i.e. copy a file, modify it,
add a few references).
Otherwise: learning how swscale works is not something I am ready to do
in my free-time.
