Note that if you are interested I have a plan to
use a similar lookup system for e.g. the fourccs.
They use huge arrays that most codecs only use
1 or 2 entries of, so this might reduce binary size
by maybe 100 kB.
It also means that we won't have an issue
with adding more fourccs to a codec for example.
