use external liblzo OR write a small and clean lzo decompressor but iam
against droping liblzo into lavc, the reasons should be obvious
1. maintaining that liblzo "fork" (think of secholes for example)
2. redunancy (for example theres a addler32 checksum routine in it, we have 
one too)
3. its a mess with all the #ifs
4. ffmpeg source size bloat
5. ffmpeg binary bloat of liblzo is on the system
