Its very unlikely that i will submit code to x264 in the next year as iam
heavily overly busy but i would be interrested to peek into the x264
discussions occasioanlly, like about the dithering. Iam not sure if iam the
only one here ...

About the dithering you said you use error diffusion while someone trolled
about sws using ordered dither. Well truth is sws had error diffusion dither
support but it looked worse for videos (not still images) than ordered.
so i removed or possibly never commited it.

It is not what we do, but why we do it that matters.
