Yes. I said:
"Integration is svn more important than features IMHO. Michael will want 
direct rendering in svn than frame copied integrally like it was before, 
and Vitor commented about it. That's why I changed it."

You complain about your "picture in picture" feature which is way less 
important than getting the filter in svn and overlaying a logo at first.

Then you should focus on what matters, not your "features", stuff in soc 
svn is assumed to change without notice IMHO.
