The API could in theory change, but fair enough.

I'm not suggesting anyone spend great amounts of time hunting for
exactly what is needed. However, if for example you use any of the
av_str* functions, I think it is reasonable to know these are declared
in avstring.h and include that. If something is missed, it's no big
deal. The reason I want this guideline is that it reduces the amount
of cleanup needed if an include is ever dropped from a header. These
things happen, and chasing down every optionally built file that might
need updating takes time.
