The facts speak for themselves - libswresample is better in every way and
there's nothing we want ported from libavresample. If you think otherwise -
send a patch or at least structural critique of how libswresample could be
improved. There's still 2 years until the code is removed and even then
it'd still be in git, bitrotting as it currently does.

I'm still intending to apply this patch in a few days.
