How do you decide when to use a packetizer then though?

If you try without one first, then you may change the (effective) 
prioritization of decoders in rather undesirable ways. We do have cases 
where a single codec has packetized and non-packetized decoders, 
although I am not sure what the relative priorities are.

If you try with one, then b_packetized will be constantly true.
