Based on the FFmpeg experience, how many working hours do you expect
this to take?
I'm quite worried about the repository downtime, both for development
and users (pre7 more than 1 year old + cvs down is not good).
If there is any way to add the fixes at a later time I'm for going that
way, the SVN repository won't be more broken that current CVS anyway.
