I wish this were so easy with you:

If I understand this sentence correctly, you agree with me
that it should be as easy as possible for users to receive
amrnb and amrwb streams.

It should be added here that the demuxer always has to be
forced - I don't know if auto-detecting amrnb and amrwb
could be done but it is not part of the patch. (But the patch
is a necessary prerequisite for this hypothetical auto-detection).
The question for the user is though: How to force the codec?

Then you wrote:

How does this not contradict your first statement?
It is probably (I did not immediately succeed) possible
to allow users to first force the amr demuxer and - in
addition - force a codec.
But as we - seemingly - agree above that users should
not have to force everything, I considered that actual
patch much more useful.

When you add the fact that you wrote that you refuse
to read a user report to the contradiction, you will
hopefully understand how futile it appears to have
this technical discussion with you.

Adding personal insults to every single one of your
emails of course significantly strengthen above
