Combined with a release script doing rm of libav*?
I think the problem is that libpostproc just isn't a viable stand-alone program, mostly due to complete lack of stand-alone testability not to mention test infrastructure.
Keeping the separate git up-to-date certainly is an option but involves extra effort (though a lot less than making libpostproc testable stand-alone).
I don't see a good way to split the libraries into separate repositories that does not involve either at least maintaining configure in each or seriously harming bisecting/regression testing.
Release scripts that generate multiple tarballs seems more realistic than splitting the repository, in case that sounds like helpful to anyone...
