If everyone agree, we could change the codecs to output something 
non-palettized like BGR15 or BGR16, or even BGR24/32 to have a lossless 
IIRC all palettized codec are available also as native codecs (msv1, 
cinepak, qtrle, msrle, fli, smc, gif, ...). Do you know of any 
binary-only decoder that only has palettized output?
The only bad side of this solution is that dithering is required if you 
use a palettized vo, while now it can be avoided.
