I think the approach that was discussed for FFmpeg was to only
compile the faster variant.
I has quite a few issues, but in principle only compiling in
tremor support would select it.
It would also work the other way round (and probably better),
make tremor the default but only compile it in on FPU-less
In the case of MPlayer there may be some issues with that,
e.g. the native ogg demuxer behaviour might change.
Of course the best solution would have been if tremor
hadn't been developed as a completely different library but
instead was just a different configuration of libvorbis...
