This. These opaque fate tests are so much work to get around. It went
far enough that I added bullshit to ffmpeg.c to get around some of the
questionable tests.

Also, TRAC issue numbers have 0 information contents. Even if you go
through the obnoxious process of looking it up on TRAC and trying to
extract iunformation from a confusing discussion with a confused user
(99% of TRAC issues), TRAC could easily go away. It already happened
once, and some of the bug numbers in old commits obviously don't match
with what's on current TRAC.

So stop this.
