I imagined that the new metadata api would either
export 2 AVMetadata sets (one unchanged and one converted to generic tags)
that there would be a flag that specifies which of the 2 variants should be
exported by a demuxer.
This is a consequence of the Convertion tables to have been found insufficient
by anton and i prefer not to have ugly callbacks if it can be avoided ...
Within that imaginagtion metadata translation would happen inside the
(de)muxers. And alot of complexity would become unneeded i think, this
function in that form too possibly
