That doesn't free you from the responsibility to keep things in a
reasonably working state.

I can understand that attitude, but if a fix takes "longer" and
meanwhile certain filters or encoders crash left and right in git
master and even in the latest FFmpeg release, there's a need to act
quickly, even if it means reverting certain patches.

I don't want to blame anyone (and I ask you not to blame others either,
like you did above), but please fix/avoid crashing bugs?
