BTW reverting this change if we have to might not be so hard if in fact we
feel that need. However if we do add some new capabilities like streaming
content (if you remember all the Value based work we experimented with) you
might want to leave it to test codec variation to see if bugs are due to one
codec implementation. Then again it's not so big of a change to revert if we
do need it. So it seems I can go either way :-).
