Your code, especially older code, is among the most horrible I have
ever seen.  You being the author provides me no assurance whatsoever
that the code in question is up to FFmpeg standard.  Quite the contrary.

coding style (or lack thereof) prevalent in mplayer.  I do not want to
see it infiltrate ffmpeg.
