i think we tried this a few years ago and found that we do still have
ffserver users, they are just quiet until we threaten to rm it. if/when
it breaks, someone will either be there to fix it or it will rot.

removing it really helps no one, unless your larger goal is to seperate
the project into library maint and a seperate project for tools like
ffmpeg/ffserver .

i'm not making the argument either way, i'm just trying to help. :)
