So do I. And if it really turns out to be a performance problem for any
specific case, it can be always replaced with a hardcoded table.

FFmpeg documentation does not quite agree with you (you are too extreme in
this case):
"We refuse source indentation and other cosmetic changes if they are mixed
with functional changes, such commits will be rejected and removed. Every
developer has his own indentation style, you should not change it. Of course
if you (re)write something, you can use your own style, even though we would
prefer if the indentation throughout FFmpeg was consistent (Many projects
force a given indentation style - we do not.). If you really need to make
indentation changes (try to avoid this), separate them strictly from real
changes.
NOTE: If you had to put if(){ .. } over a large (> 5 lines) chunk of code,
then either do NOT change the indentation of the inner part within (do not
move it to the right)! or do so in a separate commit "

Yes this looks much more compact. The only drawback is that it introduces an
extra addition per iteration in the inner loop. So it's not a complete win
perfect replacement either. Should I resubmit a patch with this way of table
initialization?

OK, sorry. Thanks for clarification.

I have no strong opinion about this (and I doubt that it matters here
anyway).
