anyone willing to submit clean and nicely split patches for things you think
are clean enough to be added to ffmpeg cvs? it would be an advantage for divx
too in case you ever want to upgrade to a new ffmpeg (less merging work)
a few notes, 
* 0.0/0.0 is not INFINITY this is very wrong
* dont bother to submit VC++ "fixes" they will be very likely rejected
* the %lld/%Ld -> PRIu64/PRId64 changes will probably be accepted
* avoid tabs, we will remove them from any submited patches before applying
