And I just added this to Xuggler this evening (will be in Xuggler 2.1
next week).  The result was a big increase in throughput for one of
our multi-threaded decoding tests (in particular several demuxers
demuxing an FLV file with a header claiming it had both audio and
video, but only containing audio) because we no longer need to lock
for the entire duration of av_find_stream_info.

Thanks Andreas!
