IMHO you're going a bit quick in switching everything; at least I would wait
until the whole tree gets its deps converted to the virtual before letting
libav be the first provider
I hope my fears are unjustified but I'm not sure how the PMs would behave in
the following cases:
a deps on b and virtual/ffmpeg
b deps on media-video/ffmpeg
what happens when I want to install package 'a' on a fresh system ? the pm
tries to pull the virtual and thus libav and sees a blocker with the non
same questions with:
a deps on media-video/ffmpeg
b deps on virtual/ffmpeg
type 'emerge a b'
