I'm still reading this whole thread, I'd just like to note I'm
completely against this idea. It's interesting but I've seen too many
cases where it plainly doesn't work and I don't see any reason why it
_would_ work for us.

FFmpeg is best lead by the people who - at that time - have the time
(and knowledge) to review patches and help steer and move forward.
Right now that isn't just Michael, a whole group of us reviews etc.
And that's how it should be. Not assigned, but self-driven,
autonomous, with Michael as a final (belevolent) dictator in case
that's needed. Maybe not ideal, but better than a committee.
