Thankfully, you are always involved in every long and drawn-out discussion, which is a very handy coincidence, so if someone has questions about the summary of the API changes, I believe it could be incredibly helpful if you already just went ahead and filled in everyone on those.

I guess FFmpeg can never ever change the API again then. Pack it up folks.

It has been months. This wasn't rushed. You either disagree with the design or with having the patch author contribute to FFmpeg, but either way, postponing this further isn't going to solve whatever issue you have with it.
