They do, but since we have stopped compatibility and are subsumed by
better alternatives (as per the docs), I see no reason why FFmpeg
developers should work on them, and they should be phased out IMHO
(hence the thread). If asyncts actually does something not subsumed by
aresample, the docs should be updated.
