would there be some interrest in having nice standard a.b.c versions for each 
lib (libavformat, libavcodec, libpostproc)? 
so that an increase of
c means no binary compatibility breakage 
b means backward compatibility (added function, ...)
a means no compatibility (function removial, ...)

and just to clarify, yes for cvs not the yearly releases, the later would be 
pointless as they always break compatiblity entirely

if theres some interrest then ill change the meaning of the current 
LIBAV*_BUILD number from integer to aabbcc 3 element version vector or do we 
need more then 100 of each?
