Bug#614726: FFmpeg 0.6 transition

the ffmpeg transition got entangled with soundtouch (libsoundtouch1c2 →
libsoundtouch0), vtk (5.4 → 5.6), and now with gdal (through
openscenegraph).  While soundtouch is close to ready, a number of vtk's
reverse deps FTBFS, and afaik gdal has barely started, so I'm looking at
separating these out.

So I'm thinking of temporarily keeping libavutil49 in testing, with
something like this:

diff --git a/britney b/britney

I'm hoping since libavutil has versioned symbols having two versions in
testing for a little while won't be too much of a problem.

A test run with the following set of hints looks like it would work,
once the missing builds for audacity and gst-plugins-bad0.10 are in:
