  We all now it's a very bad idea and it took us a LONG time before
even allowing it. The conditiong on allowing people building on
external ffmpeg was that we would NOT support those versions (we can
see the difference since the plugin description is different).
  Maybe we should send a mail to most gst-ffmpeg distro packagers
explainining the reasons why we did this and what it implies (we will
not fix the bugs, they have to fix them). Hopefully some of them will
revert that decision.
