"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.

> Hi guys, 
> I was looking at your mod of Virtual Dub on SourceForge.net, and I

> We help people pledge small amounts (or large amounts!) of money 
> to you and 
> others. For much open-source software, people are reluctant to 
> give money, 
> because they're afraid nothing will come of it. microPledge, 
> however, holds 
> their money in a trust until they see the developer's made real 
> progress on 
> the software. They can't pull their money out unless the project 
> fails, so 
> developers can be confident they will get the money. 
> This enables trust on both sides, and it means people are more 
> ready to 
> support your software. 
> We provide a free service for open-source software. To put your 
> project on 
> microPledge, visit http://micropledge.com/dream and enter your project 
> details. Make sure you select "Let only me quote" (unless you want to 
> open up the project for quotes from other develop ers). 
> If you're part of a development team, simply enter your project's 
> name as 
> your username when you sign up, and choose somebody's email for 
> the 
> microPledge 
> emails and PayPal funds to come to. 
> Some existing projects, perhaps like yours, may prefer our 
> donations-only 
> scheme. This might work best if you're just bug-fixing and can't 
> aim for any 
> feature milestone. It is different from pledges, because the 
> money goes 
> directly to you instead of being held in trust until you make progress 
> releases. I'm sure you have other sources of donations, but 
> another might 
> help. To create a donations-only project, simply visit 
> http://micropledge.com/dream <http://micropledge.com/drea%0Am>, 
> create a 
> project and select the 'donations-only' 
> option. 
> We're working towards partnering with SourceForge.net so that they 
> will 
> allow 
> you to place microPledge links on your SourceForge.net project 
> page, 
> providing 
> you with easier-to-find sources of revenue, without somebody

> The more people who pledge to open-source software, the more 
> pledging will

> You can help us, and help the Open Source movement, by letting

> By all means, let us know how you find our service. We appreciate
