BTW another possible approach, would be using the MATLAB C interface
and write a libavfilter wrapper for it.
Even better would be to support a FLOSS solution (it may be
Octave/SAGE in this case) through a wrapper mechanism, but I know at
least liboctave is quite poor in this regard.

And in this case it would be useful to add support for float images in
libswscale, as the image processing packages in MATLAB/Octave use
float numbers in many cases.
