We could set Conflicts tag to prevent 'libav' installation if FFmpeg is already
installed (and viceversa).

I don't know which one is the better today, but upstream says that 'FFmpeg' and
'libav' are different especially at API level.

I think that if it's possible, we can provide both and leave the choice to the
developers.
