As an historical note, IIRC they appeared as an attempt to fix 
dangerous error practice (returning -EFOO which breaks in BeOS because 
posix errors are already negative) but never got used everywhere 
And I recently fixed all that in a better way with AV[UN]ERROR() which 
ensures on every platform to return a negative error and to be able to 
get the correct error value back.

So to everyone submitting patches please always 
    return AVERROR(some posix error or errno itself);
