(and here i am, picking a java-fight on the ffmpeg list. again ;)

i don't really understand why is it a PROBLEM, that there are multiple
implementations. shouldn't that be an adventage? i left the c/c++ world
a long time ago, but last time i checked, the various compiler vendors
provided their own stl/stdio/whatever libraries. how is that different
from the java situation?

or you can require the sun jvm. well, you can choose to support only the
sun jvm. if someone uses the ibm jvm with it, he can, but the only
supported one is the sun jvm.
