The file shouldn't be accessed after this, so the location shouldn't
matter.  Now it seems ffmpeg.c assumes that the file position will
always be at the end.  Rather than requiring every muxer to ensure
this, I agree that it's better to do things properly in ffmpeg.c.

Stop it, both of you.  Neither of you is a native English speaker, and
the occasional mistake is understandable.  Michael's persistent
refusal to use any punctuation whatsoever is not, however.  It strikes
me as childish, if anything.
