It is true that I'm the only person who's written lines of code into 
that file,
and I did not read the original yadif code when implementing the 
algorithm (rather
I used a more comprehensible description from the doom9 forum), so yes, 
I guess
that's possible. I don't have any particular objection to doing so. I 
can suggest
a patch and see if other people agree it's possible.

This is certainly possible, but requiring the end user to have the SDK 
will be make effective usage difficult.
