The problem with Chroma key HSV is that it will clamp a light green color 
to 'white' and not 'white+transparant'. At least that is my experience last 
night. I am still interested (and motivated) to see the Color Erase happen 
by the algorithm GIMP uses. I have found that ffmpeg has a blend filter, 
but subtract is not equal to color erase.

What I have done during the early hours. I have implemented a QML Webkit 
based browser. I am able capture the onscreen RGBA surface (yes, really...) 
but because this is a single threaded effort I cannot do that at the 
'native' speed to PNG. So I multiplied all the timing by 10, and captured 
at 2.5fps, this gives me:
