FFmpeg bundling exception for XBMC

Hi folks,

Alex Lancaster recently pointed out that XBMC upstream has completely
removed the option to use an external FFmpeg.


FFmpeg has been a long ongoing saga with XBMC. The XBMC developers
develop their own patches to their private FFmpeg fork, and Alex and I
have had various success or failure over the years with unbundling
FFmpeg in the past. Unfortunately XBMC has recently taken steps in the
direction to make this harder, at least for the v13 "Gotham" release.

The summary is that Alex and I need a bundling exception from the RPM
Fusion developer community in order to keep XBMC in RPM Fusion.
