Expanding on that would have been useful...

We generally won't go digging in VCSen to look at diffs. Aside from not
necessarily matching what got uploaded, it takes longer and requires
more context switching, at least IME. Attaching a diff with the
relevant changes is often helpful as an alternative.
Having filtered the diff to get rid of the considerable noise, I'd be
prepared to unblock it. There is, however, an issue:
Depends: vlc libav (not considered)
The new libav does not have an unblock request ttbomk and from a quick
look at the diff I'm not prepared to unblock it without at least some
discussion (there are changes which don't appear to be mentioned in the
changelog and some of the changes listed in the changelog don't actually
appear tohave been made).
