I appreciate that you care about ffserver.
However, ffserver still uses symbols that were declared private
in 2011/2012, so there has been ample time to fix ffserver.
I'd really like libavformat not exporting them anymore as soon
as possible, i.e. at the next major bump.
I don't really mind keeping ffserver until then, as we have
to keep backwards-compatibility anyway, but if it still uses
private symbols when the next major bump happens, it will have
to go.

Best regards,
