Well, in that case, we should had a clear statement, asking again would
not have hurt anything.

Don't know much about differences, but I guess bitstream contains
differences according to lavc code (msmpeg4.c), so again I guess those
are variants of one standard, not different implementations.
Again maybe Im completely wrong.

FFH264 is just a different implementation of CODEC_ID_H264, and should
not have another id IMHO. Also since lavc API allows to choose
decoder/encoder by name instead of id, though ffmpeg.c only uses id.
