This is what I did on my systems:

1. Accept vendor change for all packages no longer provided by Packman,
   i.e. take the version coming with TW itself
2. Switch to the packages from oS:m:l for all orphaned packages,
   i.e.  libavcodec57, libavdevice57, libavfilter6, libavformat57,
   libavresample3, libavutil55, libpostproc54, libswresample2, libswscale4
3. The oS:m:l repositories priority is set to 100

I tried to run some programs to see if they still work, especially
encoding/decoding the proprietary stuff, and they do run. So, this works
for me.
