mplayer cvs is surprisingly reliable. i've been using cvs snapshots almost
since i ever started using mplayer, and although i don't compile it every
day and i know that sometimes the snapshots turn out to be broken, i still
haven't stumbled upon a broken one. i guess building the daily cvs snapshots
is an automated process and not somebody who checks every day whether cvs
compiles and rolls out a snapshot, so it seems this is the real quality
of the mplayer cvs :)
