The questions are:

- do we want to use major to indicate *binary backward compatibility*,
  as it was proposed some time ago?

- did we break backward compatibility with the 1.0 release?

The answer to the second question seems to be yes, since we bumped
libavutil after the 1.0 release, even if possibly not many users will
notice it. Releasing 2.0 just after 1.0 seems not very glamour, but at
least conveys this information (which is very valuable to the user).

Thanks for working (also) on this.
