Do you intend to propose a patch that implements things "the right way",
"orthogonal", in less than, let's say, two years? If not, do not criticize
people who propose something that works.

Maybe I tell them to wait until the genius wm4 has condescended to implement

My patches, either for sub2video or for subcc in movie, are indeed ugly
hacks, I never denied it. But they work, right now, and they are of service
to users. Furthermore, they are isolated features, without tendrils all over
the place, without causing unrelated problems and ready to be removed when a
proper implementation is committed.

By disparaging them, you are insulting both me and every user who uses the
features. There are very few people whose contributions are so invaluable
that the community has to bear with their rudeness.
