The swscale code is quite complex anyway, before considering that it is 
rather difficult to read in many places because of macros giving 
indirections. Or as M?ns put it, the code makes his eyes bleed.

I just wanted to note that diving into this code won't be the easiest 
thing but don't give up, persevere and one should get there. As Michael 
says, submit your code early and persist with it and you'll get much 
more out of it and learn much more about our standards and how we operate.
