Allright. Moreover I (AFAICT upstream, too) am happy with any other 
package name than 'ffmpeg-free'. ;)

I had another idea over the weekend: Given that there are quite some 
dependencies between the libraries -dev packages in ffmpeg, how do you 
like the idea of a single 'ffmpeg-dev' package that contains all 
headers and static libraries?

How can we process in getting rid of ffmpeg-config?
