i like to repeat, that kostyas patch should go in, if you ask for the
old scaler droping to be postponed i can understand this but this code
is not risky if it is tested, its also one file replacing another, this
is easy to revert if it causes a problem.

if you want swscale completely frozen so that no bugfixes nor features
can be commited then you should make a fork of it now IMHO

and before you say ohh no, bugfixes are ok, i will not do bugfixes twice,
now on walkens GPL code and then in 2 weeks on kostyas LGPL code. Nor will
i debug or test code that i know will be droped in 2 weeks, OTOH i of
course wont stop you or anyone else from doing work twice.

PS: I think it should be the maintainers and patch authors decission if
a patch is too risky for the release or not.
