I second this. The exact way this is implemented is entirely 
unimportant. But this pointless fighting leads nowhere.
While I agree that this patch is technically correct and does not 
violate API in any way, I also kind of dislike using opaque_ref for 
this, and would welcome coming up with a nicer solution, that's ideally 
compatible with libavs approach without too much work on every patch 
that touches it.
