A note before some reply. I am both slow and busy.
I also have the interesting and certainly useful email by Georgy
to work by, but the above applies.
Also (and that's why I've added Andrea), the samples (Andrea's and also the
shaker that Georgy sent, because after say 1 year, try and find it searching
emails within very short time! Not easy, unless you're the author and know
exactly what you searching.) *should* be downloadable from a directory
somewhere in https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/ and testing at least somewhat
standardized, so anybody can reproduce it.
Got to go now. Need more time. (but there is one more line or
two of mine below).

Because the FFmpeg folks are mostly experts and the current
(updated not much longer than just a few months ago) VP9 Wiki
wouldn't be there as it is if it weren't correct. I myself only
tried to follow it.
I read all the above, and I wish to git pull the updated source,
to see for myself.
When time permits.
