Hm, yeah, but the code doing the effects could be separated out to libs.  
The keypresses are used to control settings of effects, and to generate
a reference image to compare other video bits to.  So that sort of thing
can be provided by another app.  I.e., you hand a plugin one frame, and 
then video to go against.  It should be doable, IMO.

Of course, I'm not a video person <g>
