Well, I sorta did. I've been working extensively on deep codec issues.
Check libdv.sourceforge.net for the bulk of the results. More on the way.

Currently we're tied to Gtk because we build on top of the GtkObject
system. glib 1.4 will have GObject, based on most of the same ideas but
not at all tied to Gtk. This means full independence. However, for the
moment even commandline tools require an X server. Depending on how long
it takes to get glib 1.4, I may make a third attempt at cleanly splitting
all Gtk code from GtkObject.

Mostly because that's what I do. However, I am open to changing the name
at some point in the future if that's deemed a good idea.

I have a feeling gcc doesn't work as well as egcs. You might try
replacing the read_tsc macro with the following:
#define rdtscll(result) \
__asm__ __volatile__("rdtsc" : "=A" (result) : /* No inputs */ )
You'll have to change all 3 or 4 calls to pass the variable name directly
instead of a pointer to it.
