Well imho also regressions are worrisome, recently (at least for me) frame 
rate detection and also audio bitrate detection got worse. Fixing regressions 
would be a priority. On the other hand a fork might just make the whole 
situation worse (unlike X.org fork from XFree86 where all-1 developers were 
involved in the fork which is not the case here).

Life is a game, and if you aren't in it to win,
what the heck are you still doing here?
