No, you're just a baka who can't read code.. The reason it's
"intermingled" as you say is exactly BECAUSE of so-called object
oriented principles like organizing code into reusable 'classes' for
basic functionality which almost all of the codecs share. Grow up and
RTFS rather than sending flames to the mailing list when you find
yourself clueless.

[..a baka who can't read code..] ...and who attaches useless offensive
