I have to agree here, strict code ownership can easily lead to long-term
problems. If one person makes all the changes to area X of the code
nobody else will be familiar with it or even attempt to understand it.
If the owner then disappears for some reason (which has happened often
over the lifetime of MPlayer) nobody can make changes or improvements to
the code in question.
