Regarding the "It is not a library for code needed by both libavcodec and
libavformat", how true is that in general? What's people opinion?
I have so far contributed with RIPEMD and SHA-2 512 modules that, while
certainly useful in many situations, they seemingly aren't so in multimedia.
No format or protocol ever seems to use anything but CRC32, MD5 or SHA-1.
I ask because i have written several other crypto modules (MD4, CRC64, Tiger
and Whirlpool, all available in my github repo) that i haven't yet submitted
for reviewing because i wasn't sure they were worth the maintenance burden
if no format or protocol would ever give them any use.
If lavu's purpose is being a feature complete utility library (or as complete
as possible at least) meant to be used in any kind of project, then I'll post
