AIUI interlaced fields are encoded as a pair in one field, so for most
video players "disabled", ignoring the interlacing flags and treating it
as as normal frame is the same as "weave". You usually get quite
noticeable combing artifacts with that. "Bob" is more or less an
alternative way of doing next to nothing; it displays each field in turn
without any attempt to combine them.
