So, since you're stating this as fact, I would like to point out that this
was never formally agreed by any group of FFmpeg developers, and this is
certainly not the official position. I would like this patch to be reverted
unless we can figure out more about the origins of this file, in which case
we can re-assess what is really going on here.
