Oops. "(n+1)%5=3" should have been "(n+1)%5==3".

I am splitting out solely frames (n+1)%5=3 and applying "deinterlace" solely to them as single 
frames. For that application, 'pp=linblenddeint' appears to do a better job (visually) than does

To me, deinterlace just means weaving the odd & even lines. To me, a frame that is already woven 
doesn't need deinterlacing. I know that the deinterlace filters do additional processing, but none 
of them go into sufficient detail for me to know, in advance, what they do.
