Yea, I don't know whether it will become more popular or not.

The BBC don't do it for SD or the same HD on DVB-S2 - everything is
flagged as interlaced.

On w3fdif - I totally missed that going in, but after having a quick
look I think I would prefer yadif=1.

Maybe my test sample was unlucky, but it flickers like filtered bob near
the edges and manages to let some weave slip through.
