Thank you for clarification. I understand there are people who are not 
happy with additions like this. However, there are also people who think 
these changes are needed and trying to stop them just because "we don't 
want this here" or worse, making fun of their work is not the way to go 
to be honest.

I don't really know how/when this conflict started or have your 
complaints been answered or not but it seems to me there are some of you 
who are really frustrated with the direction ffmpeg have taken.

So why don't you propose something constructive, e.g. partition into 
distinct libraries so muxing/demuxing code is not getting "spoiled"? 
There must be some kind of solution everyone can agree with.
