Well you yourself complained about the horrible hack of adding 1024
bytes padded after a static avframe went through without review,
slowing down performances while stating the opposite in the commit

But I had really hoped that we could use this thread for something
more constructive than "you did this to me", "I don't like you because
you smell" and other childish troll attempts.
I believe that we could really find some possible common points of
cooperation rather than blaming each other projects for all world
As I stated in my original email, maybe we could start at looking at
the API and avoid some of the AV_PIX_FMT_ABI_GIT_MASTER in the future.

If anyone prefers to contact me off list, please don't hesitate.
