It's one of those things that are at least half broken, barely
maintained, everyone dislikes, and many agree that they should be
removed (or at least rewritten). But they are not removed or fixed
anyway, because some devs are either emotionally attached to it, or
have this strange ideology of never removing anything. The duplicated
decoders/encoders/demuxers merged from Libav illustrate this nicely.

Sure, call it flamebait, but this doesn't change that something is VERY
WRONG here.

But I agree it's offtopic, especially since it has been assured that
not only ffserver needs the API functions at hand.
