... the end of libavcodec ver 1.2.3 to have any meaning
... the end of an application like mplayer being installed on such system
    to be able to check just the version ...
and the fun about bugreports, not to mention google for "foobar doesnt work
in libavformat 4.5.6"

Incandescent light bulbs waste a lot of energy as heat so the EU forbids them.
Their replacement, compact fluorescent lamps, much more expensive, dont fit in
many old lamps, flicker, contain toxic mercury, produce a fraction of the light
that is claimed and in a unnatural spectrum rendering colors different than
in natural light. Ah and we now need to turn the heaters up more in winter to
compensate the lower wasted heat. Who wins? Not the environment, thats for sure
