ahh that list
well i dont care about that list, theres the TODO list in SVN and theres
roundup they have been maintained and reviewed and are of mostly high quality

that wiki thing is a list of bugs, feature reuquests, duplicates
and outright nonsense
like "Conversion to rst or docbook isn't really required, 
       but would be greatly appreciated. "
appreciated by whom? not by any ffmpeg devel! iat least prefer a format
which i (and as many as possible others) understand
(it has this minor advantage of making it possible for people to improve
the text yeah i know its not that important, much more important to switch
to a complex format noone knows

also whats the silly libavformt is ... poem good for it does not belong
in a wishlist
or what is "Study the current specification and clarify what the issues 
are, putting it in a verbose and understandable form." as libavformat wishlist
supposed to mean?! this sounds like an aplication from some SOC student
also this TODO point is copy and pasted 3 times

"Option to build FFmpeg decoder/encoder/demuxer/muxer and post-processing filters
for the DirectShow API for Windows by Microsoft"
= duplicate ffdshow

really the whole wiki wishlist should be deleted IMO, a large part is total
nonsense and it clearly has not been maintained or reviewed by anyone

and if anyone is stupid enough to implement these they will just
end at a "we dont want that" on ffmpeg-dev
and thats hugely wasted time for the poor author ...
