You think so, but obviously you do not know how much in cost compared to the
actual process of decoding.

Also, I forgot the other kind of cost: the human manpower. Adding the calls
to the callback, checking that they are placed so as to leave the context in
a consistent state without leaks, adding a testing infrastructure so that
they stay that way, handling the merge conflicts, etc., is a tremendous
amount of work.

I have read you, and I have already answered that argument: what you demand
is costly, YOU have to pay the price, not everyone using FFmpeg.

But you did not test.
