Grab any audio file and try to decode it, manually disabling different audio 
functions it uses from libavcodec/libswresample and recompiling, and see how 
each of them affect overall decoding speed.
You'll find that many don't even seem to have any effect if you only check with 
time, yet are still 2 to 4 times faster than their C counterparts.

Do you want to remove them as well?
