It was never my intent to make lavu into a place for code common to lavc&lavf
Thats also written in the 2nd sentance of doc/avutil.txt
the 1st sentance:
(libavutil is a small lightweight library of generally useful functions)
explains what it was intended for.
Its true this is my view and others might surely have a differnt view but
as far as i can remeber noone said anything against what is written in
avutil.txt ...

Besides all this, a lightweight lib of usefull things like balanced binary
trees, md5,sh1,crc,aes,portable reading of IEEE floats, ...
is usefull for many applications and libs.
a lib that contains exactly all code common to lavc & lavf is primarely
usefull to lavc & lavf.
Also if the goal is to make lavf useable withot lavc well, what else would be
used, propriatery codecs? nothing? iam surely in favor of seperating them
more cleanly but i think using lavu as a common trash dump would be a big

Frequently ignored awnser#1 FFmpeg bugs should be sent to our bugtracker. User
questions about the command line tools should be sent to the ffmpeg-user ML.
And questions about how to use libav* should be sent to the libav-user ML.
