That is reasonable, but in such case moving it to separate repo is nonsense. Also I'm not sure ffmenc/dec removal is good decision at the moment. I don't want to suggest there is ohter app than ffserver that use it, but with these removed you can forget ffserver will exists in other repo, right?

ffmdec/enc will not be removed until the next major bump at the earliest
for backwards compat reasons. At worst, when AVStream->codec is removed.
And Reynaldo, who's moving ffserver to a separate repo, said he'll make
it work without them in the long run.

In any case, ffserver and ffm* will all be gone from the main tree sooner
or later.
