I agree. Except that libavcodec/libavformat are libraries. And the
library user (ie a programmer) shouldn't have to wonder if the C calling
convention or the C++ one has to be applied. Unless he has to check the
original source to see what is the original programming language.
Anyway, it's not necessary on anything else than avcodec.h and avformat.h
