Basically this won't be anymore a lut filter (for each input value,
lookup a pre-computed value in a table) but an eval filter (for each
input value, evaluate an expression depending on the current video

mp=geq allows to do something similiar, but only works with yuv
formats, and I wrote an eval filter which was never applied, maybe
I'll find the time/inspiration to work on this...
