No, that's why I wrote "thinks" not "posts". That is how I work on my
software projects and I had off-list communication with ffmpeg devs
who seem to do the same from time to time, no matter how well these
plans work out (I rarely keep the deadlines I set myself).

Yes I did and do consider this a possibility. That's why I am not
saying "you meant it that way" but rather how the tone is perceived in
some cases. Sometimes this is a cultural thing (like me having been
perceived rude by americans I have done business with in the past for
being too direct) but especially in Austria my experience is rather
the opposite (like Christoph Waltz put it in the Conan interview
"first, they are very polite and second, they don't mean it" ;-)).
