What I meant is:
On a system that I did not consider old before testing
this patch ffplay suddenly stops working making
FFmpeg development much harder.

So my question is: Did I just miss how old this system of
mine is or will we maybe stop supporting easy FFmpeg
development on supported major Linux distributions if
the patch gets applied?
