Thats a long list, but i think for discussing the change of
avresamples default build status, theres one keypoint missing
and that is who would maintain it ? 
maintain = (like always, review patches on ffmpeg-devel, fix
regressions and security issues posted to trac)

also one could go on and argue when avresample why not gstreamer
and libc or maybe gnu make.
though i guess this direction of argumentation doesnt lead anywhere
i find your "inflicting pain" and politics chatter a bit lame

You can kill me, but you cannot change the truth.
