I was on a crappy phone virtual keyboard, I could not elaborate

Many many projects nowadays use FFmpeg's API correctly, without this
merged side data thingie. That proves it is possible. If some projects
insist on using bad frameworks, they will get bad results. I do not
think it is our purpose to accommodate bad frameworks.

And, in fact, are there projects who use this thing? I mean current,
alive projects. Unless I am mistaken, even the purpose of this API was
not documented.
