Well, while I don't like having these GPL fonctions since having them
means that nobody will ever write LGPL equivalents, I doubt someone will
ever write them, so I won't complain so much I guess.

I will however strongly object to remove any LGPL optimized function for
GPL ones. FFmpeg main license is LGPL for good reasons IMHO.
