Thanks for the explanation. That is a valid reason.

But as is, it would result would be duplicated code for people who do
not worry about licensing.

Are there any features that tinterlace has and this new filter has not?
If not, then I think it would be better to just replace tinterlace

I can answer myself: tinterlace has asm optimizations. This is not for
me only to decide, but I am rather against having duplicated features
just for licensing reasons.

In this particular instance, I think you could use the GPL asm
optimizations while having the filter itself LGPL.
