Sorry for distorting your words with regard to hundreds/thousands. But even
like that, I find it opposite to my intuition, which is:

A. there are bugs fixed in ffmpeg and not libav;
B. there are bugs fixed in libav but not in ffmpeg due to different code
C. there are bugs in ffmpeg introduced by the daily merge;
D. there are bugs in ffmpeg introduced by our own changes.

And while B and C are quite infrequent, I would be surprised if B+C+D did
not, to a certain amount, compensate A.

I am perfectly ready to accept your claim if you are sure of it.

A few concrete examples would be nice, though, to serve as arguments in a
discussion, for example if someone should decide to take the matter to the
Debian community.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions.
