Sorry, I don't understand: Do you mean if the user specifies
the work-around, it will break files encoded with current
x264? Isn't that the whole point of this (and every other)

I believe you know that I am a big fan of warnings but printing
a warning when a user explicitely specifies an option? We
don't warn when an experimental encoder is used (not even
when we know it will segfault) and I don't think it is necessary.
Thank you, Carl Eugen
