This is surprisingly rude:
I am always trying to tell the truth, one of the things
that make me less happy about contributing here is
both that I am not allowed to write the truth anymore.

Anyway: In the discussion about adding one of the
features you mention above, tests were posted that
showed this encoder to produce better (objective,
with all its disadvantages) quality using measurably
less cycles.

Given how much you embarrassed us in the prores
discussion, I wonder why you make this claim;-)
