I'm ok with that, but next commits that do that and also do rename are
not available.

I'm also not sure can reinterlace filter be cosidered really safe from
standpoint that
it does not use any old GPL code.

Also bunch of stuff it does is trivial, both new and old GPL code so I
consider nobody
should care about its license.
