I agree this is a problem.

It's also not clear what would happen if B were chosen.  Would Michael
go away and leave the project?  This sounds like a choice between my

Maybe other alternatives need to be explored.  FFmpeg does not need to
be lead by one person.  We can have a structure similar to the board
of directors that we have for the FFmtech foundation.
