[mythtv] Feasability of using software scalers in mythtv videoout

A few years back when I was working on an html gallery generation tool, I found 

It has some very high quality scaling results, at least for what I was doing at 
the time.  I was looking for libraries to use for the image scaling (mostly 
downscaling for the purposes of thumbnails/intermediate sized images on pages), 
and realized that ImageMagick stole this code and didn't properly attribute the 
original author.  All of the algorithms here should be available in ImageMagick 
libs as well.  It might be worth mining and allowing configuration of scaling 
algorithm in the UI, that way an appropriate algorithm can be chosen that 
blends CPU use with quality.
