[FFmpeg-devel] [RFC] about av_init_packet

Hi, all:

When I read the code about av_init_packet(), I found we use
av_init_packet() in most cases like this:

    enc_pkt.data = NULL;
    enc_pkt.size = 0;

my question is: is it have any special reason to put
AVPakcet.date/size initialization outside av_init_packet()?

If don't have special reason, I will submit a patch to put
the data/size initialization in av_init_packet() and remove the
explicit initialization for data/size field.
