AVI demuxer outputs rate_m*framenumber for pts.
NUT demuxer outputs ticknumber for pts.
MPEG and ASF also use ticknumber, but it's the same since their rate_m
is implicitly 1 (1/90000 and 1/1000).

Then you agree that AVI should just output chunk number for pts, at
least for video? Right now pts advances by rate_m for each frame,
which makes no sense to me... For audio, the demuxer should probably
also output chunk number (along with rate_m/rate_d values, of course)
and the framer could transform that to sample numbers (i.e. in units
of samplerate) or leave it in chunk numbers for fixed framesize audio
