[FFmpeg-user] Handling uncompressed10-bit YUYV 422 (packed)

I've been a part-time user of ffmpeg (from the command line), and I'm now trying out the API/SDK to perform some processing.
One keen feature I'm interested in is being able to encode or decode using a packed 10-bit YUYV 422 pixel format.  Thus far, I have noticed the 8-bits-per-component 'AV_PIX_FMT_YUYV422' pixel format but I have not seen a corresponding equivalent for 10-bits. I can appreciate that 10-bit formats are very awkward (CPU hardware is traditionally built for powers of 2).
Having searched the 'net, I've come across a few posts mentioning v210, but it appears to be referred to as a codec (http://obe.tv/about-us/obe-blog/item/21-faster-professional-10-bit-video-conversions).  Any assistance would be much appreciated..
