Which I'll send later today, but the original e-mail was looking for
guidance on how to patch.  Here's the options I see:
1) just add clarifying comments (my recommended) to avformat.h
2) deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree from the public API and put in
3) deprecate av_destruct_packet_nofree from the public API, put it in
internal.h, and provide a safe function that can return a function pointer
that is valid for external libraries on Windows to put in AVPacket.destruct,
and document.
4) do nothing

I'd rather not create all patches without guidance.
