I've just committed an image flip for compatibility with VP3 lossless 
transcode. Thanks to mau and derf for verifying that this was needed. 
It's a little hacky on the decode side; suggestions for improvement are 

Since this is a bitstream change, and we're still a ways from having a 
complete spec (which is the gating item for beta 1 and the bitstream 
freeze) we're going to do an alpha 3 release. Hopefully this will be the 
last bistream change, but we said that last time too so no promises. 
However, we don't have anything else in mind, and we've had longer to 
think of things this time. Help with the spec if you want this to be 
frozen as a supported format. :)

Anyway, it's time to take a look at the code again and polish up 
anything you'd like so it's all shiny for the release. Test it with your 
applications and your files, and let us know about any problems.

Progress at last,
