How 'bout "There -are- no developers on it"?

a) that's nice.
b) mkvserver_mk2 isn't the only alternative (see below)

Dead serious (and hardly stupid). If that particular software is so 
necessary to your process, stop complaining that nobody else is working on 
it and do it yourself.

If it's that important, find something that half works and use it. And 
ffserver was dropped almost FIVE years ago! There's been plenty of time to 
find something else.

Then maybe you'll have to dig up an old version or do without.
