Holy HELL man. Get OVER the fact that it's under the Libav org! Apparently just the fact
that it is there means you can utterly ignore everything that's been said thus far!

At least read the freaking Github project description or read what's been said before
you go off saying untrue things. Geez! If you don't know WTF is going on, DO NOT COMMENT
IN SUCH A WAY, because you are both uninformed and haven't even bothered to do the VERY
basic research required to make a remotely informed comment.

P.S. c99-to-c89 is regularly being tested with FFmpeg via FATE, and for your information,
several bug fixes were done to c99-to-c89 specifically to fix FFmpeg while I was fixing up
MSVC support in FFmpeg, so I'd hardly call it "unsupported".

Seriously. These 'concerns' are stupid.
