speaking of which.  I submitted your bktr code to the ffmpeg developers,
and there is a small issue with it's license.  since the time you wrote
that, they have changed to mostly LGPL.  grab.c is LGPL.  would you like
to change the license of grab_bsdbktr.c to LGPL instead of the current
GPL?  otherwise, the bktr code can only be used if ffmpeg is built
with --enable-gpl.
