  Just to state this one more time: libavutil was especially created to
be used in every program that needs any of its functionality.

  So please do not hesitate to depend on it! There is absolutely no need
to be a multimedia application. If you have a program that can benefit
from libavutil, just use it no matter what the domain of that program is.

  Sorry if I get a little excited about this, but I am a bit sad this
was misunderstood by so many developers (even FFmpeg ones).
