As you said yourself, we have been and will be relying on this probably
As a result I'm not convinced that this really is a better approach, at
least thinking long-term, than asking everyone to update to fixed versions
of those programs...
But apart from that, even if we keep the fields in AVFrame can't we just
ignore them at least, to reduce the amount of changes?
I.e. only do the frame.h change? Or am I missing something (sorry, I
feel confused trying to read the diff, so it might be just me).
