I completely agree on that count. I've been hacking away at the resizer
element and it took me hours to understand how it worked because of all
these layers, while it actually is a bunch of simple v4l2 and cmem ioctl
However, this is not at all a blocker for moving the repository. Other
plugins have dependencies, too.
