Right, but av_url_split() deals with URI handling, which is thus
already taken care of by a non-FFmpeg part, apparently. That's why
av_url_split() started off being in lavf. Why would you use it in
collaboration with lavc? Which part of lavc requires URI handling? Or
is this for apps that want to use only this part of lavf, but not
other parts? If so, where do we draw the line?
