I personally do not scale most of the time, and when I do, I scale
BEFORE cropping.  The performance difference is negligable.

Yes, I said codec, but meant "format".  You'll see that I also mentioned
4:4:4, which is a format in which cropping to odd dimentions makes
perfect sense.  No, there aren't many situations where that is
appropriate, but there are some.  We could also limit cropdetect to
no-less than multiples of 4 to prevent people working with interlaced
material from shooting themselves in the foot.  I just dislike the idea.
