In general you prefer never to have AUD enabled unless required (to avoid issues like your own problem this is fixing, and because it is just redundant padding which increases the size of the stream to no gain), so the cases where you want it enabled are going to be where it is an absolute requirement anyway (such as bluray), hence I see no meaningful "auto" case.

Resending with requested modifications and basic implementation of 
bluray_compat function which enables AUD.

Sounds and looks fine to me.
I agree that having AUD enabled by default wasn't the best solution, as
it's useless overhead for most cases.

This is a misleading option name because Blu-ray compatibility is a lot
more than what you implement. There are lots of rules I implemented in x264
years ago.

Yes, it is not yet fully completed, it will require much more changes 
and tests of encoded samples. But i think it is good start... Maybe we 
could print some warnings about using this function for now.
