Of course, I do not think anyone will begrudge the committers to forget a
patch in an overloaded mailbox.

I see. But let us assume that a Third person has reproaches against a patch
that can not convince either the Submitter to withdraw it or the Maintainer
to reject it. I suppose you will either consider the patch properly approved
or intervene in the discussion?

And the itchy part: does this still hold if the Third person is M?ns and
Maintainer is Michael?

If so, I think someone should commit

76ad67c  Implement guessed_pts in avcodec_decode_video2
d6705a2  ffplay: stats: do not dereference NULL video

(possibly sqhashed into one).

This would have the additional benefit of reducing the API and ABI
difference between the three.
