Which is exactly why I mentioned that in my email. There's a patch which
just needs to be applied.
As for framesync support, the opencl infrastructure is done properly and
init is abstracted enough to be simpler than to use opengl and writing a
filter from scratch.
Not to mention having opengl support in any capacity in lavfi could mess up
any clients using opengl.
