Yes, but I'm not really any closer to having a working solution than I
have been four months ago. I'll see if I can work on it during the next
two weeks.

About the Block 2: I don't think we should rush this. Leave the current
block scheme in place in 1.0 and maybe create a new block for after 1.0.

I don't think that these two are required for 1.0. They're 'would be
nice to have' features, but nothing more. We already have support for
one lossless codec (FLAC), so these two should not stand in the way of
1.0 being released.

I agree. We won't get that working anytime soon.


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
