It would be very helpful from the ffmpeg side, if there finally was a
real release, on which application could rely on binary/sourcelevel
See also http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/faq.html#SEC22 for reference
Besides this, linking dynamically against ffmpeg results in loss of
features and performance. At least I was told this by an ffmpeg developer.
