now everything makes sense
i was always wondering why configure, the makefiles and all the scripts look
so messy, you dont look at them while writing.

that says something about your personality more than anything else

because i wasnt waiting for you
i just saw someone wanting to fork because of it so looked at the thread of
yadif which i remembered that i approved. And found only your unspecific
i want to review it too that was 2 weeks old

if you want to review it noone stop you, but if you dont dont ask for further
iam sure there are minor issues that you will find if you review it but i
dont think any of that merity more weeks of delay.

That coding style predates yadif by a large margin.
