Sorry, I cant really understand this. What has performance to do w/
external libraries. (this does not necessarily mean using shared libraries)

What's the point, if this library is maintained by mplayer folks and
provide mplayer's ilbao2 interface ?

If you fear 'bad influence' from other projects, you can still ship a
own branch w/ mplayer, which may be replaced by the 'open' branch 
at build time. (i.e. --with-openao=...)
