Thanks for the breakdown, Christoph. That puts the overall task of
testing against a newer ffmpeg into a more realistic perspective.
I intend to help with build testing ... now I understand some
better the size of the job. I think I will work on setting up some
kind of automation for the building. Also, looks like hoorex will
be handy for tracking drown cross dependencies.

 David Spencer's slackrepo should make the testing pretty easy (at least
the build part).
