 Are you sure avcodec supports every 'common' tools actually used by
AAC ? And if no, are some of them widely used ?
 Have you tested that vlc and avcodec AAC decoder do actually like each
other on a large set of files ?
 Have you tested faad vs avcodec stability against broken/corrupted
streams ?

 I am not against the change and I would prefer to have only avcodec,
but I don't want to have unneeded bug reports.
