yuv2rgb_mlib.c is a very thin wrapper accross the mlib - I'd think it falls
under "there is only one way to do it". I clearly would not have any claims
related to this (I don't want to talk for Hakan Hjort though, you should
ideally ask him). I do believe the situation is different for the yuv2rgb
C code though, as it's been done many different ways before I came up with
one I was happy enough with.
