Then I suggest to commit to the libavfilter-soc filters, this should
also increase the level of interests of all the potential users ->
more patches, but that could be also have a negative effects, since to
change the API will require more effort if we have many filters
already committed.

So maybe the best thing to do now is to focus efforts on the main repo
integration, I'll get back to that in these days.
