My local crash-fix hack for videotoolbox actually uses buf[] for this
purpose, but it won't work in general, because video data might need
it. Also that would have exactly the same problems as opaque_ref.
Actually, all approaches will have exactly the same problems as
opaque_ref, but michael doesn't get it.
