Being in -bad doesn't necessarily mean that it's a bad plugin, just that
it hasn't qualified for Good or Ugly. To get promoted it has to pass a
code review, be documented, and have unit tests.

Some of the plugins in -bad are very dodgy, but some just haven't got
the last bit of love to write documentation so they get promotion. I'm
not sure which category qtdemux falls into though.
