Well, judging from the commits I'm seeing on mplayer-cvslog, quite a few
of them seem to be real bugs.

Fixing these defects is also going to be a status thing I guess.  The
xine people loudly say how horrible the MPlayer code is at every
possible occasion.  Nevertheless their defect rate is considerably
higher than ours.

I couldn't help but grin ;)
