quicktime's plugin is a demuxer, not a decoder.

I hope ffmpeg will implement the codec, so we can simply use ffmpeg for
this. This actually makes ffmpeg just as troublesome as avifile, except
that ffmpeg actually works. Is that what we want?
Most projects simply fork ffmpeg's tree and use it. Do we want that
or do we want to link against ffmpeg's source tree like we do now?

We can just fork the xine sorensen codec code of course, but that's not
really the way-to-go(tm).
