libswscale.so.0 build from ffmpeg master and ffmpeg oldabi branches are 
no longer compatible. I don't have the time/knowledge to port all our 
programms to be compatible with the new abi, so we need to provide both 
abi version. To provide both libs I've created the subpackages 
libswscale0 out of the ffmpeg master branch package and 
If you compile against a package which is build against ffmpeg-oldabi,
you should add a "BuildRequires: libswscale_oldabi0" entry, otherwise 
use "BuildRequires: libswscale0".
