What exactly needed this bump?

avcodec_decode_audio4 was already supported, and for other functions we
can base on the wrappers that get introduced in libav when they add new
functions. (for example avcodec_decode_audio3 which uses
avcodec_decode_audio4 internally)

I think we want to support at least Debian sid (although there seems to
be a recent libav in experimental).
