Uh, I had a quick look, and my first conclusion was that documentation
does not seem one of the things eina seems to include.
The biggest part of libavutil as I see it is actually simple/easy to use
crypto-related stuff. I see nothing at all like that in eina.
Mixing that and not only multimedia-only but also FFmpeg-only stuff
like sample format definitions in the same library just feels wrong to me.
Admittedly probably more because most of the libavutil stuff does not really
belong into FFmpeg, but still.
