I'm bringing this up again since I'm waiting it to be decided to add my 
lavfi build changes (which introduces LIBAVFILTER_VERSION).

My vote is to keep lav* public headers compilable in as many compilers 
as possible. As long as to revert it or to do something different, I'm 
indifferent. I vote also to revert it if we don't get a consensus in two
