Now *THAT* is a good idea for a project.

Forking libavcodec and making a nice C++ pluggable interface to it. If
you want your module, just compile it using the "insert your codec
library here" API and have the plugin in .so format.

I think this idea is advanced and interesting enough for people to get
interested. And say the sooner this is started, the better. I
absolutely hate to depend on an unstable and ever-changing API.

Volunteers? :)
