I'll speak for the people then ;-) 

In any "normal" usecase you would probably never notice any difference. But 
imho mixing Packman and Videolan repos presents an unnecessary risk of weird 
little problems. Even though problems are smaller than they used to and 
package manager vendor stickyness helps too.
