Ill wait with the wikileaks donation suggestion until theres a
consensus about wikileaks but,

Skiping all the numerous controversies around the foundation and
instead just looking under the "line".
since the creation of the foundation it has probably received 100k
donations (pure guess as nothing is publically known)
In the same timeframe to the best of my knowledge (i could have
forgotten something) the current ffmpeg developers have received
less than 500 Euro, and i remember one of the libav
people complaining even about that. Where the rest of the money went
is not publically known.
Above and the various controversies have also caused me to withdraw
my candidacy as director earlier this year.

Please dont take offence but theres no way by which i could support
FFmtech handling ffmpeg donations with the current board of directors.
Neither past, current nor future donations.
Even without all the skiped controversies and there are enough to fill
a book, we just get nothing back from ffmtech, so its completely
useless for me to support it. donating to wikileaks, the salvation
army or doctors without borders is simlpy a better idea IMHO.

Its not that you shouldnt use gotos but rather that you should write
readable code and code with gotos often but not always is less readable
