except one needs it as a library and not as a standalone tool
(mencoder), like me. It is much easier for a user to have only one
interface to communicate with (that of ffmpeg) and not many. Would there
be much harm to keep working code for libxyz wrappers? Just my 2? ...

beside that discussion would about the patch itself?
