As I said, the code was not pushed for acceptance, but for comments,
hence the RFC in the subject.

I was hoping the code in 'tidsp' directory would be acceptable as is;
maybe making an exception on the code-style due to the added benefits
and small size, or maybe somebody would take up the task of
maintaining such code by converting the code-style from libtidsp-ng
(or whatever). If that's not the case, I can make that code a separate

Now, I don't think it makes sense to send the code for acceptance
depending on a library that doesn't exist yet, and thus would be
untestable. I thought it was much more productive to send something
that can be tested, specially since the final code that depends on
libtidsp-ng would be mostly the same, you just have to ignore the code
in the 'tidsp' directory which is just one patch (hence easy to skip).

Anyway, I already said I will change the code-style for the code
actually pushed for acceptance to FFmpeg. Any other comments?
