Hmm, I know it is always a bad thing to request something from people
that do this all in their free time, but keeping this file up to date
would be very helpful for application developers! It is pretty hard to
infer this from the git log, since the API version is not always
increased in the same commit of the new function, but often many commits

I prefer to check for these API changes via version macro and not
configure, because it is less work, and it can be immediately seen in
the source code how old the version of libavcodec is that some code
parts are about.
