"nothing will come of it?!??"
Mr. Wiesner, if you feel the need - ever! - just please speak up and state it. I am more than happy and willing to support Matroska when in need, and if I am financially able. (just a personal thought)
I appreciate Matroska and its members for all the hard work and extraordinary results!
Have a great weekend.
