I think someone insisting to have his way by changing all code written
by another is not a sustainable long-term situation. It is also quite
far from what I'd call "non-aggression". If both sides in a disagreement
behaved equally "non-aggressively" it would lead to a commit war.
If you claim you want to avoid flaming I think you could choose better
words than calling such activity "cleaning up after you".

Snide remarks are something I can ignore myself if needed.

I think it is clear that the "traditional" MPlayer development practices
did lead to a mess. I think the biggest single factors were the aversion
to any "cosmetic" changes at all and the strict code ownership policy.
