@Reinhard: I think we very specifically removed this API because we didn't want
to support the functionality anymore. Therefore, there is no new API to do
this.

This has been deprecated for >1 yr, why wasn't this noticed before? It does
sort of explain the rationale behind us doing this: projects take a lazy
approach ("oh I'll just hook this protocol in Libav instead of integrating it
properly"), making traffic essentially one-way. That's not right. The patch, if
unclean, should be cleaned up and submitted upstream. If the method isn't
right, that should be fixed. If wholy unsustainable, it shouldn't be used in
the first place.
