I'd like to *strongly* discourage this!
Please believe me that this does not solve *any* (possible) problems.
(for FFmpeg and MPlayer, I am not sure what else could be meant with "codecs and
multimedia packages" and I don't know how well or how badly this would work for
other projects).

I don't immediately see what's wrong with 1), but I may not see the important
things there.
