The problem is both lack of skills and lack of time. I can't call myself a
maintainer if I know very little about C or the codec I'm maintaining. I
don't want this pushed that much as to lie about my skills and deceiving
other people. I prefer sporadic contributions, reviewed by people in the
know :)

I think that duplicating outside the decoder is an added complexity that
wouldn't be used much, but that's just my opinion. As long as there is an
option or native approach inside avcodec that decodes Fraps as the
reference decoder does I'm fine with everything you come up with.
