I've also seen mixed hard telecined (24->29.97) and interlaced (29.97) in the same stream, or hard telecined and 29.97 progressive. This whole thing makes me wish we used PAL here. Also metric paper, but that is a different gripe.

Not now, but later, I would be interested in helping to adapt decimate to do what we want.
A detectfps filter might be useful too, and would be a subset of the work.
