This sure adds a lot of additional fields to the main struct for a
rather specialized feature, that I personally rather see in the hands
of the user of avcodec, not avcodec itself.

In any case, can't we do this without any new public fields at all?
Put the initial_* state fields into an internal struct (ie.
AVCodecInternal), and expose enabling this through
AVCodecContext->flags or flags2?
That would make me feel much less dirty looking at this patch, personally.
