I dont like that every now and then someone is calling the developers
gods. They arent and they dont see themselfs as gods. As it is always
with opensource software, people try to solve their _own_ problems first
after that, they think it _might_ be usefull for others too.
And developing a program in your free time and then getting
flamed because this and that doesnt work isnt that much fun.
Especialy because you spend your free time for it.
Even as i dont write code for mplayer, it takes me a lot of time
just to go trought the -user mails (between 1 and 3h a day, depending
on the traffic), so please stop complaining when someone doesnt see's
your problem or your patch gets forgoten.
It looks like you partitaly understood it by getting your own hands
dirty and trying to fix the problem yourself, thanks for that.

The problem is that the one who wrote the whole ATI code is fokusing
on his own project (no, i dont blame him) and as it looks like there
is noone else who cares about the code.

it's patches.txt and maybe you should read it again. Patches belong
to -dev-eng as a lot of developers dont read -users.

Looks like you are a bit arrogant yourself....
