I had never used blacklisting before, and was a little surprised
blacklisting oss-compat didn't work.

Sure, we could rename ffmpeg-common. But, before I do anything, I will
ask around for some information on this kind of dependency/recommends
problem. If I have no better plan, I'll make sure we try adding osspd.
But, I'm not sure that will work, since oss-compat is specifically
recommended by libdv-bin. Perhaps libdv-bin should be set to recommend
osspd instead?
