It's already Saturday here, and 1:20AM. So can't argue with much conviction :)

As mentioned on #opus, be it a global pool, or a call back , or

the same: share of resources across all decoders.

I will come on Monday if that's okay... could setup a time that works
for you. I'm based in Melbourne Australia
