The idea is that CodecState is only used if the CodecPrivate changes in
time. So far this will only be used for MPEG-1/-2 in which the sequence
headers may change. Of course it destroys compatibility. That's why it
will only be an option that the user has to "--engage" in mkvmerge. A
couple of months later I'll make it the default.


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
