[FFmpeg-devel] [RFC] av_tree enumeration

Hi all,

I'm considering to use av_tree for storing elements of FFmpeg,
e.g. filters, codecs etc.

This should allow two important objectives:
* to make insertion / extraction / find operations faster

* to eliminate the next field present in many element, thus making the
  code containing the elements constant and shareable.

av_tree already presents an API for iterating through elements, namely
we have av_tree_enumerate(), which is commented out since the first

Could someone explain how to use that function, and if it can be used
to do this? I could try some guesswork, but it's faster if someone can
give some hints about it.
