Afaics, the cons argumented were that this "demuxer" doesn't fit the
criteria of a libavformat module. It's not demultiplexing a multimedia
It, unless i misread it, is just reconstructing one out of a non-binary

This should be implemented as a separate tool using libavformat, and
not as a libavformat module.

See liboggz's oggz-dump tool.
