Please tell if you consider this format acceptable.
One obvious limitation is that it can't store codec properties (nor
the codec name, nor more than one stream). One possibility would be to
dump the serialization of AVCodecContext/AVCodecParameters, even if
these would require a serious limitation on the format (since that
means it would require to use it only as intermediary format, for
muxing and demuxing using the same version of FFmpeg, which is fine in
my use case).
