OK, will remove.

I'm not sure if I should rely on this. But considering VSScript.h
includes VapourSynth.h anyway, and we don't use any VapourSynth
functions directly, the risk is low, so I'll remove it.

You mean using wrapped avframe? It means you don't have to mess with
raw encoding/decoding.

Unless we have some fancy way to make rawdec.c accept frames packed by
av_image_copy_to_buffer() without having to map pixfmts to raw codecs?
(rawdec.c is a lot of code, I might have missed a simple way to make it
accept that.)

Ah, that is true. In theory it's in conflict with out policy that
libavutil can append fields to AVFrame, without rebuilding libavcodec.
I've copied this AVFrame packing code from kmsgrab.c though (which is
also new code, and which I've noticed leaks memory when handling malloc

I think it'd be best if we had updated "non-dumb" side data which can
manage AVFrames in a correct way. But it'll be a long way until this
happens, apparently. If you really want to solve this, we could
introduce an av_frame_get_struct_size() call, which would be dumb, but
correct. (Or maybe make it avpriv_?)
