It seems a bit tiny for a lib of its own. And I can't say it seems like
particularly bright to first merge audioconvert now into libavutil first
I just think the case for this change isn't really convincing, it is a big
change, it is kind of an API/ABI change (there are not even stub functions
left behind) and lastly the logical conclusion to the given arguments would
be to remove _both_ libavutil and libavcore (since the argument is that
there's no point in a stand-alone libavutil).
