The vc1 decoder could need frame parallelization.
That being said, what normally happens is that 
you decide on which part of FFmpeg you would 
like to work on and start sending patches. In 
theory, this can lead to duplicated work but in 
reality this does not happen very often afaict.

(And I suspect parallelization of vc1 is not 
an easy task.)

Thank you for any contribution!
