well i need a patch which i can apply, the AAC decoder from last SOC
has never even been sent here for review IIRC i might be wrong but my feeling
is that its very far from finished
but feel free to post a patch based on the AAC decoder if you think
its close to being finished i surely would be happy if we had a useable aac
decoder in svn

no patch which uses this broken API will be applied, everyone who submits
a codec/demuxer with palette will have to pass palettes around in a thread
safe way and its not hard anyway, just pass them like normal frames

there is nothing more to fear from them, then he is always stirring up
some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader. -- Plato
