paying people for bugs sounds ok for me.

i like this idea too. i know theres people who want more subtitle
support (embedded ass, pgs / sup (bluray subs).

just being able to copy h264 into mkv or ts like tsmuxer or mkvmerge is
what a lot of users want as well.

if either of you prefer, all devels could make a list of bugs that
devels want fixed. then we can combine those lists together, top 10
bugs get bounties? i dunno.

i'd prefer not to use another service that takes 10%. we're already
losing percentage to SPI...
