That in C++ these mean the same, but in ANSI C the semantics are
different; function() is an (obsolete) K&R C style forward declaration,
it basically means that the function can have any number and any types
of parameters, effectively completely preventing the compiler from doing
any sort of type checking.

This type of declaration has been obsolete for something like fifteen
years, I don't understand why it's still allowed, it's really crap.

Are there more instances like this in ffmpeg? I surely don't hope so.
