having all the code available as C or C++ will make it much easier 
for someone to port.

there is really no point in doing libquicktime on OSX since it has 
the real thing.  libquicktime really has nothing in common with the 
mac quicktime api apart from reading the file format and decoding a 
very small percentage of the available quicktime codecs.  it's quite 
easy to add quicktime video to an app, it's about 10 lines of code. 
plus, there are a ton of other goodies covered by quicktime.

so tom, how are your altivec skills?  i'm going to dive back into it next week.
