Michael wrote the code already, devs working on filters know where to
find it.  There is no need to bloat FFmpeg with libmpcodecs.

It does not cause direct issues for my work, but Carl Eugen could not know
that.  The least thing he could do is ask, in the appropriate forum.  On
top of that I remember him being against cosmetic changes in the past.

Then there is the issue of bloating the history with huge and completely
pointless commits and causing conflicts for every single developer with
changes in one of the affected files.

How this kind of unannounced change can suddenly be taken for granted
without discussion just boggles my mind.  Had somebody else done it in
a different context, I'm sure the mob would already be calling for
accounts to be closed.
