From my point of view, it doesn't matter it is "deprecated" or not,
it's still a part of the package that people use and it has an error,
thus it should be fixed. There's no arguing about that. If it was truly
deprecated, it would have been already removed from the package!
I also have a very good amount of customers using vhook functions, so if
the change was added to the official code, it would definitely make my
life easier (and a lot of other people's life that use the same vhook
too). I'm just trying to help here... If it's not welcome just let me
know, I hate flame wars, specially starting a new one...

I'm not really concerned about time response as I'm able to fix the
problem myself when needed, I only contacted the list because I thought
it would interest other people too.
But, if the developers are aware of such a simple error but are not
willing to fix it (it doesn't even take one minute), then I'll have to
think the ffmpeg project is not really that serious or committed to
produce good quality software.
But, as I said, I don't start a flame war... I'll patiently wait for a
reply before considering the development group a bunch of slack
programmers hehehehe :) --- hey, just kidding ok? don't take it
