You know, this is getting really frustrating Ian.  If you aren't going
to actually read anything that I write, then perhaps we should find
some other member of the -ctte that isn't so blinkered into arguing
their *own* position, and is more able to absorb and balance the facts
that are being presented here.

The windows release has *nothing* to do with solving the problem here,
that was a simple answer to Chris about why his friend's system did
not yet have Opus support in the binary he downloaded.

The existing deployed base *has* speex support.  The only version
missing that is upstream code from the last few weeks, which is what
Thorvald is going to remedy when he gets back.  That is what we plan
to ship in Wheezy.  That will be compatible with the existing base.

We're not relying on anybody to do anything with windows binaries.

There is nothing here that I have not already said in previous mail,
and you are arguing a straw man now.  Chris, Thorvald and I have
agreed on a plan.  You have, and are, trying to veto that, but have
offered no explanation of your *technical* objection to it.

Please either tell me what your real problem is, or step out of the
way and let us do what is needed to prepare a sane release.

 Thank You,
