Which is fine, but the problem is there's so many ways of working on
those priorities that nobody can be involved in all of them. So once
you've picked some particular ways, your challenge is to find some other
folks that're likewise interested; and since you've picked something
that involves non-free stuff, you've immediately ruled out most of the
people who're active on this list, who're here because they want to make
a completely free operating system, for which opera just isn't relevant.

At this point non-free stuff's probably specialist enough to warrant
it's own group, rather than using -devel/-legal/etc, so it's easy to
find the handful of other people who're interested in non-free stuff in
Debian to make it work as well as possible. OTOH, while I'm interested
in improving non-free, my priorities are elsewhere too atm...
