I am not sure if I understand the question:
FFmpeg now contains an inverse telecine filter (that 
is not a deinterlacer) which is said to be (slower but) 
clearly superior over all MPlayer filters.
The inverse telecine filter is able to call a 
deinterlacer for frames that could not be inverse-
telecined, see an earlier mail in this thread for 
an example.

An inverse telecine filter is of course not a 
deinterlacer, but if your question was - as I 
assume - "can FFmpeg cope with telecined material 
even if it also needs a deinterlacer" than the answer 
is yes.

Or did I misunderstand? I suspect that by definition, 
a deinterlacer can not be telecine-aware.
