As always M?ns is a very poor choice to be the spokes person for the 
ffmpeg community. He has demonstrated again and again that he can't deal 
with criticism, has no demonstrable social skills and is not interested 
in the community other then developers. Users, integrators etc are of no 
concern to him.
Many projects depend on ffmpeg, so - in my view - the ffmpeg community 
has build a responsibility towards those projects. The split up is still 
a question why, but steering towards a real split does not seem to be 
the best solution.
