Sorry for stepping in this discussion, but making a release generally
implies doing something like "svn cp trunk tags/ffmpeg-0.5" or similar.
The change for disabling the unwanted codecs (or similar) can be done
in "tags/ffmpeg-0.5" (where all the important bugfixes and/or security
related changes should be backported).
