Maybe I should have said 'dynamic loading' rather than 'dynamic
However this may be called correctly, this is just about doing
the same for the cuda filters like what ffmpeg is currently
doing for the NVENC and NVDEC codecs to interface with Nvidia
libraries (which are part of the driver and would - from my
understanding - fall into the category of 'system components'
and as such exempted from the GPL).
