Why is it a security problem to have FFmpeg and Libav, but apparently no
problem to have MySQL, MariaDB and PerconaDB?
This seems quite arbitrary to me, especially since there have been
already 36 CVEs in 2014 for MySQL , of which 26 apparently are also
relevant for MariaDB  and PerconaDB , but only 7 for FFmpeg 
and 8 for Libav  in the same time.
