I think it's impossible to 'fix' without breaking the API; hence my
suggestion of just adding a comment warning users.

However (see option 4 in my original e-mail), it might be a good idea to
move av_destruct_packet_nofree to an internal-only method and deprecate it.
It causes more trouble than it's probably worth externally, and setting
destruct = 0 has (close to) the same effect.

If folks think that's the right way, I can submit a patch.
