[FFmpeg-devel] FRAPS skip frame handling

the FRAPS decoder seems to use reget_buffer for the single purpose of
skip frame handling.
This seems wasteful to me, isn't there some simpler way API-wise to
indicate "no change"/shouldn't just returning 0 work just as well?
One other reason to want to change it is because this seems like the
only thing making it possibly non-trivial (though not difficult I guess)
to make the decoder frame-multithreaded.
