  As kind of inventor of libavutil (I came up with the idea and did
the initial restructuring, not the code itself) I am against this

  It was never the objective of libavutil to be the sink to push
common code to that fits nowhere else. The goal is to have small
and useful collection of routines of general purpose, somewhere
accessible for use in all kinds of projects (many of which will
never be published publicly).

  As much as I value the objectives of the OP, I for myself
cannot agree to the conclusion.
