This is a very different use case than the original proposal was meant 
to solve, which I understood as pre-skewing uncompressed output samples 
to improve lip sync.

It's clever to re-use the mux api for libavdevices, but I don't see much 
muxing going on there.

Maybe a more specific function name would reduce this confusion e.g.

I think it's reasonable to pretend that the "mux" interleave delay is 0 
for now.
