  Ok. Here's why I'm personally interested in doing it:

    1. FFmpeg integration will hapen in that fashion if it
    happens at all. It would be much more extra work for
    me to do it otherwise.

    2. It is incredibly hard to control how libraries are
    built w.r.t. compiler options and such unless we have
    a tighter integration I've described. This makes my
    job much harder as far as performance tuning of the
    FreeSwitch is concerned.

 Now, #1 doesn't mean that every other library should follow,
and #2 could be dismissed on the grounds that premature
optimization is not that useful anyway, but these are
my reasons.
