One approach that I would explore would be to go black-and-white, isolate
the range of luminance where flicker happens and record it to tape (or DDR).
You'd then bring that back in through the keyer input and apply a very
delicate correction via a keyer-defined window.  You could also use a video
switcher to do some creative mixing.
While I believe that the computed approach (Inferno) is the more vesatile
(and more generally applicable) we still have neat tricks that can be pulled
in real time-with the gear found in a modern Telecine bay.
