English is not my first language, so I might well have misunderstood. But by
using the phrase "on the contrary" are you claiming that we should not regard
users' opinions as our most important concern?

You have not provided any solid proof of your belief, which itself direct
contradicts the opinion of at least three people, one of which is ironically a
non-FFmpeg developer "user" who you claim to represent and whose opinion you
claim to value.

Therefore, without further elaboration, I propose to regard your argument as
null and void for the purpose of this discussion.
