Yet another reason why solely depending on libav is a bad idea.

That leaves the question of the "official" opinion of the libav
maintainers (pkg-multimedia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org).
Did none of them write anything in "defense" of libav, or have I simply
missed it?

IMHO the best idea at this point would be to toss out libav, and rebuild
the rdeps with ffmpeg. Now, before it's too late for jessie.
