2- Changing indentation/var name for a different taste

3- Rebranding: s/FFmpeg/FFavs/
> 4- Cosmetics (assignment alignment mostly)

5- Some funny copy-and-pasting of mpeg code

This is only the very initial work I do when I begin to read the ffmpeg
source code.
Now I begin to change the ffmpeg, perhaps the framework of ffmpeg to a more
readable way.
Also I can post patches to ffmpeg. But because many hackers are developing
ffmpeg and I will change some structure of the project (You can find these
changes in the latest version of ffavs although it still can't be compiled),
it is difficult to make it compatible with ffmpeg.
So I fork ffmpeg making it convient to change it.
