    I don't want to criticize your effort, but this reply has set me wondering:

    ad 1) if the BU in question considers fixing a non-working product a non-priority, why not just pull the plug on it? the...

    No i don't. Probably are crap, yes, more or less. The only safety net here is open source - as in "with enough eyes all bugs are shallow". The problem is that the existing OSS code base is growing...

    Yes it would. (be a problem with mencoder). They are the integrators of the software not me. I am the user. I use mplayer/mencoder, not ffmpeg. They use ffmpeg, wrap it with some eye candy and ship...

    Well how many of the features do you actually use and how diligent your verifications are? Do you actually check the bits in an encoded file against the appropriate standard, do you perform...

    This is just an excuse for lacking development process. The SVN version would be acceptable if there was some measure of its quality (ie. tests). Without that it is just an double edged sword: you're...

    I'm not sure if this was wrt my post but the point is I am not concerned. No sane person should give a damn if the "you've got mail" message ... which is how big? 100 bytes with a big reserve... is...

    And what the heck is wrong with memory copying? The memory is already order of magnitude faster than the rest of the system. Is d-bus the interface that you would stream movies through or what?...

    Oh yeah. Let's move everything into the kernel. Of course it *will* be faster when it requires no context switches. And you know what, it will be even faster if we ditch memory paging, pmode, etc and...

    DisplaySize no longer works?

    I just upgraded catalyst and the options DisplaySize and Option "DPI" seem to have no effect any more. I have to start Xorg with -dpi to force correct DPI for my screen. Any ideas?

    Obviously noone wants to do this. This is the grand-rewrite way of the 90s. In 2010 we already know better. We know that this way brings N years of concentrated effort in the grand rewrite itself and...

    Sure it's not nice for a process to go haywire like this, but OTOH it looks like you also have a very flaky CPU scheduler. In the old times we used to run SETI@home at 100% CPU on 166MHz boxes and...
