Shan't.  I have issues with Jeff, and swore a mighty oath never to darken  
SE's http ports again.

More pertinantly, I don't think SE's model works all that well for  
something that evolves as much as ffmpeg.  Answers to questions become  
outdated fairly quickly here, whole new ways of doing things open up  
(filters, anyone?), and even questions can become meaningless.  Providing  
historic answers that had the visible approval of the community at the  
time isn't particularly helpful in such circumstances.
