the accessors make most sense for things that need to be accessed
often as AVOptions currently have to do string matching to find a
entry and that isnt the fastest way to access things.
Also the accessors might be felt to be prettier when used from C code
to set / get fields than using a API thats based on a string representing
the field to be set ("otsoffset")
