there is no perfect one, except: 
let the deinterlacer runs on each frame and let them decide to 
deinterlace or to return original frame.(based on frame flags which can 
be overridden from playback menu)

other (easier) idea: make the change from interlaced to progressive much 
stronger (need more consecutive progressive frames) then the opposite 
another: if(interlaced inside current show) 
prefer_interlace=true;//problem with commercial breaks

I would prefer the first (perfect) one.
