FWIW, I have seen several patches of interest to me go completely  
ignored on this list. Also, I've seen some patches (primarily mactel  
ones) be rejected in a fashion such that the author of the patch  
decides that his efforts on ffmpeg are a waste and that mactel  
support is unwelcome, not unlike MSVC compile fix patches.

In general, is it a misrepresentation of the ffmpeg project's current  
policy to say there is little interest in supporting non-recent and/ 
or non-GNU cc and binutils (or equivalents therein)?
