This is like someone showing up the day a collapsing building is scheduled

in place. That simply would fly.
One at most can suggest what could be built in its place afterwards.

As i said, nobody is against a working ffserver replacement made from scratch,
out of tree or otherwise, but the decision was already made and announced in
more than one channel.

Sure, we're doing it right now. But the time to have an effect on the
decision is long past. It was at the latest back with the news entry patch.
A thread where for that matter you didn't talk.
