I don't know what you want. I answered your technical question.

For the record, this ABI compat feature ended up unused. It also causes
lots of complexity in other areas. For example, FFmpeg symbols had to
be added in a way that don't interfere with Libav ABI. So we had FourCC
codec IDs and trivial struct accessors all over the place.

Everyone on IRC oked these patches, so I'm going to push later.
