At least for importing quicktime video, you probably could have a look at what 
Rob and I did in tuhopuu1 (and partly in bf-blender). As far as I know, it 
needs to be cleaned up a little (ie. get rid of the #ifdef's in 
source/blender/src and source/blender/imbuf and make the code in 
source/blender/quicktime a proper wrapper around apple's quicktime and 
libquicktime (which I used on Linux and has a similar API to OpenQuicktime 
and quicktime4linux). If you want to, I can take a look at it again and bring 
it to tuhopuu2 and/or prepare a patch against bf-blender next week or so.
