Well, I'd be happy if we can do it at some point. Does lavf work
better than libmpdemux for all formats yet? What about performance? Is
there any hope of being able to implement zerocopy demuxing with lavf?
(libmpdemux does not do zerocopy but in theory a zerocopy demuxer with
mmapped stream later and madvise(MADV_SEQUENTIAL) or MADV_WILLNEED
could lead to significant performance gains -- fewer context switches
and much less cache pollution). I'd like to have zerocopy in the
