[arch-dev-public] ffmpeg and an x264 upgrade

Hey guys,
I wanted to upgrade ffmpeg to the latest snapshot. Two things came up:

a) Is there a reason we use date stamps for ffmpeg's version? It seems
more straightforward to use the revision number. Any problems with me
switching to that?

b) The newest ffmpeg requires the newest x264 which has an soname
bump, but avidemux doesn't compile. Anyone here willing to patch that,
or should I hold off on the upgrade for now?
