I remember that we (the ffmpeg maintainers) have already discussed 
this issue in the pkg-multimedia-maintainers list before and that I 
brought forward the same argument as you did.
Maybe we should really change the version scheme to the SVN revision. 
To avoid (or add) confusion we could add another number for 
libswscale, i.e. something like "0.svn.r15219" for libav* and 
"o.svn.r15129.r1234" for libswscale.

Loic, Reinhard?
