That is the only thing that matters in FFmpeg: people work on what they
consider important.

You demand a lot, but nobody has a duty to meet your demands.

Yes, the situation with the two resampling libraries is bad for users, but
it will only be resolved if someone who cares about it does the job. I do
not. And as with the rest of FFmpeg, technical arguments will decide the
course of the project. If you were to prove that lavr is superior to lswr,
it would certainly be adopted.

But nothing will happen if nobody steps in.
