It looks like strigi is in main, yet only seeded into kubuntu. So if
it was to be demoted to universe it could gain additional build-deps
required to enable full ffmpeg support.
alsa-plugins are also in main. It build-depeds on libav to build
libasound2-plugins-extra binary package, which in turn is in universe.
So to move libav unsplit into universe, we'd need to split
alsa-plugins package into main & universe.
Somehow split alsa-plugins sounds better than split libav.
But libasound2-plugins-extra actually has no reverse-dependencies. So
maybe we can just drop it?
How about the following plan then:
* unsplit libav & move to universe
* strigi add extra libav build-deps & move to universe
* drop libasound2-plugins-extra package (thus dropping a52 and
lavcrate plugins from the archive)
If anybody cares about a52 & lavcrate alsa-plugins, they are welcome
to reupload alsa-plugins source package under a split-name into
universe which will then just build a52 and lavcrate plugins into a
